De Bortoli La Bohème Yarra Valley Pinot Gris and Friends

Serious recipe, serious wine. One of the Upper Yarra’s coolest sites, wild fermented in large oak barrels and small tanks with lots of lees work. The result is an engaging tension between crunchy lime zest, nashi pear and granny smith apple and the layered, textural mouth feel of clever barrel and lees action. An exciting and exceedingly versatile gris, befriended by a small percentage of gewürztraminer and riesling. $17 at Wine List Australia, No Frills Wine and Aussie Wines.
