Rapaura Springs Reserve Pinot Gris 2021

Inviting nashi pear, apricot and rock melon aromas, with a hint of spice. Full of fruit character, but not too sweet, this off-dry wine is delightfully drinkable. The flavours linger long after your glass is empty.

5 Stars / 94 Points Sam Kim, Wine Orbit 2021 "Offering fabulous fruit purity and aromatic intensity, the enticing bouquet shows mango, poached pear, floral and subtle spice aromas, leading to a concentrated palate delivering succulent fruit flavours together with fleshy texture and juicy acidity, making it delectable and hugely appealing. At its best: now to 2024."

2021 was another unique vintage, one of the earliest and shortest on record. The growing season was the third in a series of drought vintages and the stress on the vines was compounded by a huge wind run. The combination of some early frost events and a poor flowering resulted in lower yields and smaller bunches than usual. This, combined with the dry conditions, has meant that disease levels are incredibly low this year, resulting in better flavours and pristine fruit with good concentration, good tannin and good colour.
