Spy Valley do plenty to build layers and layers of flavour and texture into their full bodied Pinot Gris and it works. Consistently this wine is a high achiever on the show and review circuit and in our opinion, always one of the best in its price bracket.
Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"Aromas of stone fruit, fig and almond pastry. The palate is creamy and full bodied with flavours of peach and sweet spice. Concentration of fruit shows through with a supple underlying structure that leaves the wine fresh and vibrant on the finish.
Hand harvested fruit was gently whole bunch pressed and fermented in a mix of old oak vessels and stainless-steel tanks."

5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"Showing pristine fruit notes of fresh pear, red apple and apricot combined with lifted floral and subtle spice, the wine delivers succulent fruit intensity on the palate with beautifully rounded mouthfeel and silky texture, finishing long and refreshingly attractive. At its best: now to 2023."
