TINHORN CREEK TINHORN CREEK - Pinot Gris - 2015

TINHORN CREEK Pinot Gris 2015

See the wine detail page

90 Points

Creamy tangy, complex.
The nose displays attractive aromas of creamed pears, ginger, yellow apples, honey and marmalade. It is tangy on the palate with a leesy character, which comes across as a yeasty or bread dough quality. Very good complexity and concentration with a zesty, grapefruity finish. 

Pair: Grilled salmon, spicy crab cakes, prawns, baked chicken in a creamy mushroom sauce or seasonal turkey dinners.

About Wine Scores

What is a wine score and how do wine reviewers (I don’t refer to myself as a wine critic, I review wine, I don't criticize it) decide on that score?
A wine score is a numerical rating wine reviewers give to a wine based on a series of elements. Every wine reviewer (or wine critic) has their own method of getting to a conclusive number even if they use similar guidelines to one another.
