Pinot Gris 2016
Our Pinot Gris is the fledgling pride and joy of the estate. De Grendel is one of only two farms in SA that make the more serious Alsace-style version of this wine (as opposed to Italian Pinot Grigio), and in 2013, became the only producer in the Southern Hemisphere to win a gold medal at the acclaimed international Pinot Gris Du Monde competition.
It has the colour of bright pale straw in the glass, with aromas of a mélange of fruits, spices and baked apple and tastes like a salad of juicy ripe Williams’s pear, tropical mango and spanspek melon. Sappy acidity with a mineral presence in the perfect balance of the long aftertaste.
Rich, full and well-balanced, this world winner is a heavenly food match and a must-try with any of the inventive dishes dreamed up our restaurant – and especially with pork and smoked chicken dishes.
