Orinoco Pinot Gris 2011
A rich and rewarding wine with bursting with aromas and flavours of Stonefruit, Peaches, Pears, Vanilla and Butterscotch. Fermented under controlled cool temperatures in stainless steel with regular lees stirring the resulting wine has delicious aromas, a rich and weighty palate complemented by a little residual sugar which gives the flavours a lift and encourages the drinker to come back for more.
