Climbing Pinot Gris 2012

The Climbing range within the Cumulus Estate portfolio reflects the higher elevation of the vines that provide the source material, coming from vineyards planted at greater than 600m.

Fragant intro, tree fruit by way of musky pear, and honeyed florals.  Hints at some spice too. So far, so good.  

The wine is fairly well worked, it's made well with winery techniques as barrel fermentation for a small portion (5%), retention of a small amount of residual sugar for a parcel and retention on lees and stirring for texture.

The latter is noticeable, textural and fuller. Acid is lively, a little excitable, settles a little after time. Good conclusion of flavour on the finish, a good length. Well worked example.  89 - Good
