2012 Climbing Pinot Gris (Orange)

Pinot Gris has never been my thing, so the fact I could drink this without much fuss is a good sign. It’s certainly varietal, but in no way a caricature or too sweet. Nice round, ripe fruit with flavours of pear and citrus. An appealing touch of brine, and then a bit of residual sugar.  All of this is underpinned by a lovely brisk acidity. If you like your Pinot Gris then I’d suggest this would be a good go-to wine.
