·   Grapes: Pinot Gris

 

Appearance: Bright, clear, pale straw in colour.

Nose: Medium intensity, with peach, red apple, tropical fruit and floral aromas.

Palate: Medium-bodied, delivers plenty of ripe red apple and tropical fruit on palate. A small bit of residual sugar retains very modest sweetness, adding to the ripe character of this wine as well as to the texture.

Quality: Unlike some lighter, Pinot Gris. Tightrope’s version brings good intensity of fruit with just that hint of sweetness to flesh things out.

Food Pairing: Ham, pork tenderloin, mild cheeses.
