Brancott Vineyards Pinot Gris 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lots of sweet pear and hints of peach skin on the nose framed with hints of confectioners sugar and a hint sweet herb. Pretty big and certainly fruity on entry. The sweet pear fruit is really prominent int he mouth, supported by a touch of residual sugar and solid acidity but a slightly bitter apple tone gains some traction on the mid-palate offering nice contrast in the mouth before the sweet pear notes take over again on the finish which shows some of the peach character found on the nose. With time that bitter apple skin element extends through the finish as well, adding a nice layer of complexity here. 13%ABV 87pts

Granny smith apples, pears, citrusy/acidic. A little creamy at the same time.

nice minerality on the nose, peaches, some apples and hints of sweet spice, overall well rounded and would be great with light food (preferably shellfish) or on it's own

Citrus and mineral hints somewhat overpowered by lingering sweetness. Refreshing and not subtle. Easy to drink but hard to pull out real flavors off the palate.

Delicate sweet aroma of peach, apricot, and plum. Strong dry finish with a light sour -citrusy) undertone.
