Reviews are starting to come in for the Ostler Audrey's Pinot Gris 2020.
As always, it's a delight and humbling to hear the wine critics' opinions of our wine.
Fantastic bouquet with aromas of chalky mineral and white fleshed fruits, flowers and a complex lees autolysis. There’s a distinctive memory of Alsace grand cru quality about this wine. On the palate - silky, polished, ripe, fleshy and varietal with flavours that mirror the nose, medium+ acidity, some white spice and mineral leading to a complex harmonious finish. A delicious wine ready to drink upon purchase and through 2025+
Candice Chow Wine Chat and Raymond Chan Wine reviews
Bright, pale yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is elegant and soft, crunchy minerals, pear, yellow stonefruit intermix wildflower and honey. Medium-bodied, Nashi pear and nectarines have a pure expression, interweave lemon sherbet, lemon zest, unfolding white floral and honey nuances. A subtle sweetness nicely balances acidity, lingers with zesty freshness and adds interest. Oily texture mouthfeel adorned by a very fine powdery, chalky line, carry the wine to linearity. This is an elegant Pinot Gris with purity, posied details and mineral seduction. Match with pork belly bao buns and pan-fried fish over the next 6 years. Fruit is from Clos Ostler vineyard, handpicked, whole bunch pressed to tank for cold settling for 2 days, racked to tank and barrel for fermentation with selected yeast.
