More about this wine from McLaren Vale, Australia
This Pinot Gris hails from family-owned vineyards in Southern Australia, and - in a region where red wines are more dominant - is a real stand-out. The label’s founder, David Paxton, is a viticulturalist by trade (think: grape vine scientist) and for three decades has taken very precious care of his land, committing to environmentally friendly biodynamic farming methods that rely on promoting healthy and happy soil, rather than synthetic pesticides.

A glass of this wine is like drinking the essence of a canary; bright, bubbly and fresh, clean laundry warm from being dried in the sun. Caramel covered lemon drops. Acidity that is shy and falls behind, hesitantly peaking its head out on the finish. Grilled lemon rinds, dotted with sea salt and nutmeg.

Eating...

This wine's mild essence needs flavors it can dance to without being outshone - delicate coconut and lime the perfect partners.
