'Naturally fermented in a combination of older wood and plastic eggs, this has a hint of pink - often the case with Pinot Gris - supple pear and stone fruit flavours, good texture and weight and a creamy, spicy finish. Very much in the Alsace mould. Drink 2020-23.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 92/100

'One of 3 of this variety here, this 2019 a touch less scented than Runaway, with a larger (85%) oaked component; more complex, fuller & more rounded. Still a lively fresh charm. All natural ferment, with component from concrete ‘egg’; 6 months on lees.' – Platter's Guide, 4*

About The Queen's Horses Pinot Gris:
Winshaw Vineyards says that the origin of the name of this wine comes from their great grandfather, Dr. William Charles Winshaw who was born in the USA. He ran away from home when he was 12 years old. During his travels he met Lieutenant McGuiness who was purchasing mules and horses for Queen Victoria’s horses based in South Africa. He couldn’t resist seeing another continent and later travelled with and cared for the mules on their trip to South Africa.
