Sand Dollar Pinot Gris 2018, Greystone

£18.15 per bottle

About this wine

Greystone’s dry style Sand Dollar Pinot Gris displays a nose full of stone fruit and spice coupled with a concentrated and powerful palate, with the initial juicy stone fruit flavours expanding into a lingering mineral and fresh finish.

Ageing Potential: Wonderful now, especially with food, or age for four plus years.

93 Points – Bob Campbell (Master of Wine) “Organic pinot gris with pear, stone fruit, ripe apple and root ginger lees character. Weighty wine with a delicately peppery texture. A satisfying and sophisticated pinot gris in a dry style.”

94 Points – Cameron Douglas (Master Sommelier) “Pears and white spices, Pacific Rose apples and suggestions of leesy ginger spice, pressed flowers and a little perfume. Loads of texture, leesy spice, crisp and refreshing tree fruit flavours. Abundant acidity, firm youthful texture and a core of fruit. A lovely wine with a just dry finish. Drink now and through 2022.”

95 Points – Sam Kim (Wine Orbit) “A stunning expression of the variety; the inviting bouquet shows white flesh stone fruit, rock melon, poached pear and floral characters with a touch of oatmeal complexity. The palate delivers excellent concentration and generous mouthfeel, gorgeously enhanced by velvety texture and perfectly pitched acidity. At its best: now to 2024.”

4 Stars – Winestate Magazine “Certified organic, this very pale straw wine was mostly tank-fermented, with a small portion in old oak barrels. Full-bodied, it has strong pear and lychee flavours, showing good complexity, and a dry, gently spicy finish. Well worth cellaring.”

Thai food screams for Pinot Gris, especially those from New Zealand where the wines’ deeper, honeyed, citrus flavours seem to flow so well."
