Longboard Bellbrae Estate Pinot Gris 2022


From the Bendigo region, this is a pleasing style of Pinot Gris. Deep gold in colour, we have notes of stonefruits, stewed pears and figs. The wine saw some French oak influence which has added to the texture, giving the wine a pleasing sleek note. Quite broadly flavoured with medium length and good intensity on the finish, a finish which lingers with persistence. Enjoy this, now and for two years. Among the characters the team suggest are evident here is gillyflower. I would have sworn that gillyflower was a mythical plant from Harry Potter, but perhaps not. I have no idea what characters it appears like in a wine, but if you are curious, try a bottle.
