Raidis Estate 'Cheeky' Pinot Gris 2015

Heston Blunenthal kind of wine, in that it's one that seeks to deceive, pouring more like a Provencale Rosé than a Gris as you'd know it. A delightful blush in colour, an eye catching hue delighting the visual senses before even bringing glass to lips. 

Red fruits, white pepper, a little spiced, poached pear that gives an aromatic clue as to the variety and style. 

Good suggestion of texture, balanced against crisp acid. Enough grip with some chalky pucker, long on flavour too. I like what you've done here Steve and Emma 92
