Lis Neris - Gris 2015 - 2008
Did you ever tasted the wines of Lis Neris? Well…You have to! On our Wineclub Friuli tasting they were the best of the show!! We had the opportunity to taste two vintages of their Pinot Grigio.( Gris)
Vintage 2015 and 2008!!! Yes 2008 sounds very old but it was still kicking ass.
Lis Neris – Gris 2015 (90 tsomw points)
In the glass a intense lemon yellow color.
On the nose delicate aromas of flowers, pears, tropical fruits whit hints of light oak, honey and spices.
On the palate nicely balanced, complex, full of fresh fruit and nicely structured. Great mineral tone with nice acidity and long finish.
Lis Neris – Gris 2008 (91 tsomw points)
This wine was still so good! With even more complexity and intensity. Great!
