Holly's Garden, 'Pinot Gris', 2019, Riverland, Australia


A rich, voluptuous Pinot Gris in the Alsatian style – golden delicious apples, pear aromas, balanced by a tangy acidity, and a touch of ginger. This wine is still dry, but there is a small amount of sugar on the finish.

Neil Prentice's day job is raising Wagyu beef cattle, but in his spare time he makes a voluptuous pinot gris and artisan sparkling wines in the cool-climate Whitlands high plateau region of Victoria. He uses some biodynamic practices in the vineyard, although explains that it isn't for dogmatic reasons, but simply that he believes it produces better grapes and therefore better wine!
