Pinot Gris 2023


Tasting Notes

Paracombe Pinot Gris is made in a style to reflect the wonderful fruit character of the variety and is well suited to the Adelaide Hills wine region showing off structure, flavour and finesse.

Elegant and delightful with a slight blush of colour in the glass. Lively pear and rose petal aromas, lead on to fresh and gently structured flavour nicely balanced with natural acidity.

What the reviewers are saying

Distinct pink blush; highly fragrant and effusive blossom aromas of musk, pear, spice and apple are followed by a more sedate and controlled palate, albeit with echoes of the bouquet. Very example of pinot gris. James Halliday
