Pinot Gris

Pinot Gris Wine Details
Price: $20.00 per bottle

Description: A brilliant salmon colour, the 2005 Pinot gris has rich and mouth-watering aromas of sweet tree-ripened pears. The colour is typical of Nichol Vineyard Pinot gris, caused by leaving the crushed grapes on the skins for 24 hours before pressing. Truly a sipping wine due to its 16 degrees of alcohol, Pinot gris 2005 is very rich with mellow pear flavours. As an aperitif wine it is a great match with salmon paté, grilled scallops, or other seafood appetizers. Could even be tried as a dessert wine to accompany pear-based delicacies!
