Felton Road

Felton Road Vin Gris 2011
A wine that has not been on offer since 2008 - a style only made in years when the grapes present an opportunity - often due to larger berry size.
N: Quite floral and minerally with a schistous quartz like aroma and a chalky note followed with some lite white fruit suggestions.

P: With 100 MLF and wild yeast ferment this wine has texture and great presence on the palate. The flavors of chalk and other minerals become obvious and light tree fruit flavors emerge. A dry finish and moderate length overall.
88 Points

Overall I think this is a food wine and would suit any light starter and even oysters. I would not however pair it with spicy food.
