Tahbilk 2022 Pinot Gris

There are a lot of Australian wineries making "Alsace-style" pinot gris, but very few hit the target like this new release from Tahbilk in Victoria. This is floral and fruit-driven with spicy pear and musky notes to the fore, and is extremely food friendly, as well as offering terrific value. There is a bright, minerally acidity to the finish that means it will pair well with French to Vietnamese cuisine - and anything in between. The fruit was picked late for maximum flavour impact but still has some judicious restraint. Lovely stuff. Drink now. $20. https://tahbilk.com.au/
