Tasting notes:This Roaring 40s wine captures the 'Pinot' nature of cool climate Pinot Gris. It is wonderfully smooth, round and aromatic. Like its red wine cousin Pinot Noir, it is eminently versatile in its suitability to a wide range of food cuisines. Pinot Gris thrives in the cool winegrowing regions of the Northern Hemisphere. In Tasmania, it is renowned for varietalcharacters that suggest ripe pear, exotic/tropical fruits and citrus/green apple. Typically, Pinot Gris wines are smootherand rounder than those labelled Pinot Grigio. The choice of terminology in Australia – whether Gris or Grigio – is a matter of style over substance. They are made from the same grape.Roaring 40s wines are intended to provide immediate enjoyment and this 2015 release really meets the brief. Bathpowder/talc notes on the nose are complemented by rich gingerbread and pear elements on the palate that finish softlyand gently. Match it with spicy foods from the Orient.
