An invigorating Pinot Gris from Villa Maria’s Private Bin range, supple in body and intense in flavour, this sassy vintage is charged with fresh fruity notes of green apple, crunchy pear and tangy citrus. Whispers of cream and meringue tease and soothe the fruity acidity through to a balanced, elegant conclusion. Lovely to drink on its own or with lightly spicy Asian.
