2018 Ovum Pinot Gris
Ovum is always a lovely, lolling, sensory ride – not dissimilar in shape and texture to the glossy, egg-shaped fermenter that gave us her name. Ovum 2018 reminds us of the full aromatic experience of tiny wild strawberries and their broad, dark-green leaves in summer. The palate is lush, long and blossomed with a complexing grapefruit pith at its center – gentle bitter hints and foamy softness. Finely structured and positively on point for pinot gris – another pleasing example of an ideal vintage.
