Professional Reviews


Dry, well structured, rich, full bodied and with a long finish, it displays woodland aromas, sometimesslightly, smoky, with characteristic opulence and roundness. Food pairing: ideal as an aperitif butlovely with mushroom dishes, terrines, veal and chicken as well.

First-up, I have to confess I'm generally not a fan of Pinot Gris. Whilst I was in France late last year I spent some time in Alsace. At numerous restaurants the wines of Domaine Agape were being served by the glass. My interest was certainly piqued at La Table du Gourmet in Riquewihr where the matched wines (accompanying a superb lunch) included two Agape wines. The first was the Pinot Gris Expression 2015.

What I don’t usually like about Pinot Gris is the overt flavours and residual sugar which combine to create something I perceive as oily and broad. The Agape Pinot Gris Expression was quite a revelation. It was fine and acid driven, not quite bone dry but right up there with the driest I have experienced.

When the samples arrived in Australia it was the first wine I tasted. I had it with an Asian Crab dish at Bacash. it was a wonderful match. The wine is refined, textured and acid driven The touch of sugar (it is described as dry on the back label and is way within the accepted level) makes it brilliant with exotic Asian flavours. Never does the wine look heavy or broad but it does have restrained power. We all read about which wines to have with Asian cuisine and I don’t always find the matches successful. This one most certainly was.
