Pinot Gris 2016

R 85.00

AWARDS  |  TASTING NOTES

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.
