2021 Oakdene Ly Ly Pinot Gris

Pale straw.

Lifted aromas of apple blossom, green pear and honeysuckle.

Fresh fruit driving the palate, crisp and juicy, with bitter almond, spiced apple fruit notes, a hint of oak adding complexity, lively acidity, and a persistent finish.

Pinot Gris was crushed and run to barrel and inoculated with yeast, fermentation then took place over 10 days. The yeast lees were stirred regularly over the next 8 months while maturing in French oak barriques (15% new), prior to bottling in December 2021.

Enjoy now, or cellar for the next 4 years.



92 points & Red Star Special Value, Philip Rich, Halliday Wine Companion - 'Barrel fermented and matured in French barriques (15% new) for eight months. A bright, medium green gold. A classically styled gris with aromas of gently poached pears, pink grapefruit and some orange blossom. The palate is gently textured, dry and slatey. It's quite a delicate style, and I can see this improving over the next 12-24 months'.

92 Points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review - 'Light, bright yellow colour, nutty and sandalwood overtones suggest some barrel fermentation, the bouquet quite complex and alluring in a savoury way. Crisp, palate cleansing acidity, adding persistence. A refined, tensioned and appetising dry white wine. Perhaps more grigio than gris in style and very good'.
