Cliffhanger White, 2021
Shipped and sold by Moraine Estate Winery
- Pinot Gris
Moraine's signature white from the Cliffhanger series. This year our Cliffhanger White is a unique blend of Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, and Riesling. It is quite fruit-forward and has medium-dry finish.
Tasting notes: Aromas of tropical pineapple and passionfruit, rose petal, and lemon meringue.
Food pairing: Great wine to pair with your favourite curry dish or to simply sip on its own while sitting on the patio in the sunshine.
The 2018 vintage was a featured wine in November's Wine Club package, 2019.
