It’s great to see smaller English winemakers go from strength to strength; this latest Pinot Gris 2018 from the Waller family in Kent is my favourite wine from them to date.
It all begins with a hugely inviting nose of white peach, honeysuckle, nectarine and kiwi. It’s a bright, fruity fusion but lovely and fresh at the same time.
To taste, there are lots of crunchy orchard fruit flavours; think pear and then riper, fleshy peach with hints of tropical fruit salad.
This is a really well made Pinot Gris, with lots of crunchy green fruit and zestiness upfront, but with the delightful ripeness and summer sunshine of the 2018 vintage showing through.
