Villa Maria Private Bin East Coast Pinot Gris 2009

Member Review by timbw:

Silver (Best in Class) - International Wines and Spirits Competition, London, 2009 Pale straw with greenish flecks; aromas are very fresh and primary, dominated by white stone fruit and baker's yeast. In the mouth this works very well with the combination of peachy fruit, a touch of Madeira cake and gentle vinosity, already in fine balance and with a pleasant and delicate nutty finish. Appealing and very well made. (http://www.iwsc.net/product/view/28571/villa-maria-private-bin-pinot-grigio-2009)
