Ghost Rock Vineyard Ol’ Man’s Ghost Pinot Gris

The line between grigio and gris is a fuzzy one, and this vibrant and elegant rendition from Tasmania’s Central North Coast falls on the grigio side for me. It’s water white in hue, fragrant and lively in its lemon blossom, crunchy pear and granny smith apple purity. A long, clean, energetic palate unites the crunch of nashi pear with pronounced, lemon-like Tasmanian acidity that promises considerable potential in the cellar. $26.50 at Pinot Shop.
