Airlie Bank 2019 Gris Fermented on Skins Rosé (Yarra Valley)

This Pinot Gris on skins, from the Punt Road winery team, is never a wallflower. This vintage is particularly ripe, perhaps due to the heat spikes that hit the Yarra at vintage time. It's strawberry colored, and the intense nose smells as though all the red Jolly Ranchers were pulled out of the bag. Subtle dried herbal notes follow. Despite the nose's suggestions, the palate is dry with a lovely herbal bite at the finish. It's texturally interesting and fairly well-balanced, but this is a bombastic and divisive wine style.
