Natalie's Score: 87/100

A vivacious white, with refreshing notes of peach and pear. The pinot gris adds lift and brightness to the creaminess of the chardonnay. Not too heavy; just right. Satisfy your thirst.

Chardonnay Pinot Gris food pairings: crab ravioli, creamy bacon carbonara.

wine festival good value need to buy
Jason Solanki rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

2011 vintage. Very smooth with apple, pear, citrus notes, mingling with peach aromas and flavours. Some earthy notes. Medium bodied wine with a medium-length finish that would make a very good appetizer wine. Yummy. Tasted May/2012.
The Gamble 2009 Chardonnay Pinot Gris is sourced from premium cool climate regions in South Australia. The fruit is gently pressed and handled,leading to a slightly fuller bodied and flavoursome wine. The peachy and creamy flavours of the Chardonnay add to the pear, green apple and minerality of the Pinot Gris.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
