The Adelaide Hills is without doubt one the best regions in the country for pinot gris with its cooler climate helping to craft wines with good delicacy plus a fine backbone of acidity. This is a fragrant version with a slight blush colour thanks to gentle skin contact. You’ll find exotic custard apple, pear and citrus fruits that are bright and clean. It’s then quite dry and acid driven, with a creamy texture and some nutty aged elements now starting to come through. There is a real elegance and subtlety too that lifts this wine above much of its competition.92pts - Ken Gargett (Wine Pilot)
I understand that ‘dreamcatcher’ is a term for a form of native American spider web protection charm, so to be honest, not completely sure of its link to a good Pinot Gris from the Adelaide Hills. Perhaps it is simply a catchy name, if you’ll pardon the pun. An appealing bronze colour here, and with just a touch of pink/grey, as we sometimes find in this variety. Good aromatics to be found, spices and pears; a hint of rose petals. Fresh and intense with bright acidity plus good balance, this has a good three to five years ahead of it. A very fine Pinot Gris.
