Quite ripe on the nose with slightly waxy yellow fruits that quickly turn a bit flat and herbal with air. Soft and broad in the mouth with a nice mineral edge and good clarity, though this is a bit thin on the mid-palate. The acidity really drives this, lending the wine citric and slightly bitter apple peel flavors and a nice mineral wash to the finish. A final wave of sweet fruit does reappear on the finish adding nice detail to the finale. This is not going to be that popular as it is not fruit-driven, but it is somewhat complex and has a nice interplay of sweet, sour and bitter flavors on the palate. 87pts

Light and aromatic with a subtle spice note under the ripe apple and nectarine fruit tones. On the palate this is medium bodied and fairly broad with light, fresh fruit ones and a touch of spice on the finish. Easy to understand and enjoy. 85pts

Grassy, earthy pinot grigio. The finish is perfectly balanced, nice and crisp. I really like this wine.

Very light in color, minerally nose with apricot notes, light in body, but good fruit on the palate and refreshing.

Twenty-five percent of the 2006 Pinot Gris was aged in seasoned oak. Light straw-colored, it offers complex aromas of mineral, spring flowers, mineral, pear, and tangerine. Expansive on the palate, with layered flavors and excellent balance, this fla... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Pinot Gris wine from Victoria in Australia. 2006 Innocent Bystander Pinot Gris 750ml
