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 (2021 Vintage)
"Aromas of poached pear and spiced cloves. The palate is full bodied with flavours of red apple and spice. Concentration of fruit shows through with a supple underlying structure that leaves the wine fresh and vibrant on the finish.
Harvested over 2 separate picks, 2 weeks apart, the juice was settled before fermentation in stainless steel tanks and larger format barrels. The batches remained on lees before final blending and left to rest in tank before preparation for bottling."

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."
