Eden Road The Long Road Pinot Gris 2013


Interesting wine this, quality obvious and inherent, varietal character clear. Classic poached pear with a little spice, suggestions of under-ripe mandarin.

Lavishly textural, spice and mineral that give way to a little pickled ginger and phenolic bitterness. The wine spends time on skins, some 6 months, accounting for the blush - or paleish bronze - hue. Good quality, but finish dominated by the phenolics. 90
