    This Pinot Gris style is more in line with modern Alsacian producers. The first and usually second pick is whole bunch pressed. The riper final batch is crushed before being pressed to juice. No sulphur is added at the press to allow juice to oxidise, and Lees and barrel fermentation brings complexity to the palate.

    The wine has an extraordinarily high natural acidity, this is due to the high elevation of the vineyard. Food match - as Pinot Noir is to duck, Pinot Gris is to pork. It goes great with searingly spicy Thai and Vietnamese food.

    Holly’s Garden has been a standout, value-packed label for what feels an eon – the wines hit my radar back in Best Cellars retailing days for sure. This variety and wine is given noble status by winemaker Neil Prentice, and rightfully so, gris in the right hands is sublime and the variety can sing with judicious winemaking approach to build complexity. This has lots of detail in winemaking and time on lees in barrel.

    Superb example of proper gris. All slippery texture, chewiness and skinsy pucker, high floral perfume, some lushness whipped away on brisk acidity. There’s requisite pear character, some ripe apple, a slip of Parisian almond sweet-savouriness and good bitterness. Excellent length of flavour conspires with a general sense of compelling and good drinking. Geez this is good – proper, Proper Stuff.
