2020 Animale 'Amber Gris'
David Mackintosh has become a mainstay of the Yarra since arriving from his native New Zealand almost fifteen years ago. After originally working at Giant Steps, Dave set up the superb Salo label with his old boss as well as his own Arfion and Animale labels.
Pinot Gris with it’s soft texture and reasonably thick, copper/pink skin - long an obvious choice for orange obsessed winemakers the world over. The Animale drinks like somewhere between a rosé and an orange wine, with the breadth, fruit an opulence of Pinot Gris, thick, delicious stuff.
