Lawson's Pioneer Pinot Gris 2016
Light gold. The bouquet is full of biscuit spices with poached pear and honey. It's heady and powerful with a lusciousness to the texture. Honey-baked and judiciously spiced orchard fruit flavours are delicate and restrained. Partial barrel ferment adds a complexity and mouthfeel that makes it stand apart from the more fruity styles. Very Alsatian in a way.
