    Pinot Gris 2022 Classic Hugel

    Written by Helen Crannage

    A bouquet of fresh soft fruit; cherry, raspberry, redcurrant, blackcurrant, with woodland hints and a touch of pepper. Very attactive on the palate, it is soft and supple, well-balanced, nicely structured with excellent tannins that give it a light but solid framework.

    Pinot Noir Classic
