Wow – that name’s a mouthful. And this is a whole mouthful of Pinot Gris. It’s dessert style, rich and viscous with a lovely hint of botrytis (noble rot). This translates as a forward palate of crunchy nashi pears, a little toasted almond and a nectar finish that’s 10% apricot, 90% jasmine. Not only to be drunk during dessert – it’s not at the syrup end of the scale, but just sweet enough to also cut through something rich and fatty – like foie gras or a rendang curry.
