About

Barney Flanders takes his Pinot Gris pretty seriously. He treats it very similar to the Rose with wild yeast ferments and six months on lees in barrel but it’s not a big, rich, blousy style. This is tightly wound, textural Gris with complexity that doesn't compromise its drinkability. This received 92 points from Cambell Mattinson who said this year, "It’s all quite scrummy, really." and he's dead right. Great fruit from some very good vineyard sources and made with intent.

What it Tastes Like

"It smells sweet with fruit but it quickly turns more serious. This is pinot gris with attitude. Nectarine, dry pear, brine and wheat-like characters charge through the palate, slowed only by a gentle grippiness through the back half of the wine. It’s all quite scrummy, really." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
