Thorn-Clarke Pinot Gris Terra Barossa 2006

This Australian Pinot Gris is delicious! It has aromas of perfumed pear drops, orange blossoms and dried herbs. The palate is medium bodied with nice rich nectarine fruit and freshly cut apples. The wine is very creamy and mouth filling, providing a perfect match to any food type, especially Asian foods. The rich sweet pear and nectarine flavors integrate with the clean acid to give the wine great length. Tom and I both enjoyed it very much, and we are extremely partial to red wines. Tom said "this is a red drinker's white", and I agree :-D
