PLATNIUM
Best Wine Japan Competition 2013

5 POINTS
Hint of plums, dark cherry, soil, minerals, herbs and coffee.  Round and soft start.  Good body with good fruit.  Delicate tannins and spices.  It has been stored in oak for 7 months - therefore has complexity.  To pair with gilled meat, lamb, tex mex and pasta.

Elegant and luxurious scent of flower perfume, lime, grape, some soap and green plums.  The taste is fresh with nice acidity and sweet mixture.  Complex and balanced, with an elegant finish.  Match with salads, olives, boiled and grilled vegetables, and blue cheese.

Floral, perfumed and with a superb definition of lime fruit.  Really steely and nervy, despite (the very welcome) slight residual sugar.  Richard Hemmings, Wine Writer UK, December 2012

Lovely pithy, phenolic weight on the palate.  Pear juice, sweet spice, apple skin.  Has the definition so often lacking from Pinot Gris.  Richard Hemmings, Wine Writer UK.
