Scorpo Estate Grown Pinot Gris

This is a wine in which structure leads confidently ahead of fruit, with a multilayered mouthfeel, fine minerality and a taut cut of acidity, infused by the cool, long ripening season of 2011 and reinforced with the texture-focused approach of wild yeast fermentation in old barriques. An intriguing, understated and savoury style speaks of subtle crunchy pear, kaffir lime, star fruit, nutmeg and wild honey. $30 at Boccaccio, CloudWine, WineStar, Cellar d’Or.
