4 Stars Michael Cooper 
An emerging classic. Pale lemon/green, it is mouthfilling and slightly sweet, in a strongly varietal style with generous, peachy, slightly spicy flavours, showing excellent depth and harmony. Best drinking mid-2017+

4 Stars Yvonne Lorkin 
Certified vegan-friendly, this gorgeous little gris is 100% sourced from Daniel and Ursula Schwarzenbach’s ‘Home Block’ vineyard, and comprises of ‘Mission’, ‘Larcomb’ and ‘KWV’ clones (how’s that for techie info).

Gris fans will love the ripe, juicy peach and pear characters, classic, clean nashi notes and its rich, textural finish.  Sip with Pad Thai. Yum!

Weather Conditions: Spring and early summer were hot and extremely dry. Much needed rain came in December and January promoting a vibrant and
healthy canopy.

After a warm summer we received more rain just a few days before harvest. Luckily the fine weather returned – and with the help of our amazing picking team we managed to bring our crop in safely and in good condition.

• 100% fruit from our Home block
• Moutere clay soil with a layer of sandy loam
