Pipers Brook 2015 Pinot Gris

FROM Tasmania's cool maritime climate, a Pinot Gris
to go with so many tempting dining ideas.
ONE TO NOTE:  PIPERS BROOK Vineyard on Tasmania's north-east coast sits right in the heartland of Australia's coolest and southern-most wine region, an area whose often teeth-chattering morning's and cool maritime climate prove ideal for making the island State's great Pinot Gris wines.

A now-available 2015 is a great example of Pinot Gris from such cool climate regions, with lovely rich and savoury suggestions of pears and honey, tropical fruits and a sweet ginger and cinnamon spiciness. There's subtle oak too that adds complexity and palate weight, and will help promote the wine's ageing potential.

Pay $34 and enjoy with a whole array of Asian and Mediterranean dishes, grilled seafoods or oven-roasted turkey; for availability check out
