Slow Wine Co Tribus 2022


From the high altitude Orange region, this is an intriguing blend of Pinot Gris (55%), Riesling (27%) and Gewürztraminer (18%). From the Bantry Grove Vineyard at a lofty 960 metres, the individual varieties were fermented individually in stainless, the exception being the Gewurztraminer which was fermented in French oak. The components were then blended. Pale green gold, even though it is the minor component, it is the Gewurztraminer which is most making its presence felt at this early stage. Florals, musk, lychees and rose petals, there are also notes of citrus and stonefruit lurking in the background. A mid-length style, ripe and layered, which should be enjoyed over the next couple of years. A no-brainer for Asian cuisine.
