Petane Station Esk Valley Pinot Gris 2015 $27 ★★★★½

Hot off the bottling line, winemaker Philip Barber has created a pale gold, pear and peach-laden pinot gris that has absolutely lovely layers of dried pineapple, caramel, anise, rockmelon and fig.  Yes, you heard me correct – there’s THAT much in this wine.  Pronounced ‘Pea-tarny Station’, it’s deliciously dry and textural on the finish and has a huge future ahead of it (if you’re disciplined enough to squirrel a bottle or seven away for a couple  of years).
