The Falcon Pinot Gris 2021 – 6 Pack

$120.00

Indulge in one of those vibrant summer stone fruit pastries in the cabinet. The first bite, surprisingly, isn’t sweet. Instead, it’s simple and clean, a delicate balance of acidity with a cream-like texture in the mouth. It’s full of fresh-cut peaches, oranges, a little spice and with a slight sweetness to finish.

You can’t help but take another bite just to make sure you got it all. Maybe one more. Do you feel like kissing the baker? That’s what you can expect from this easy-to-drink, Marlborough Pinot Gris.
