Pinot Grigio is the Italian name for the variety known as Pinot Gris in France. This wine is a cool climate example from Eden Valley where the clean natural acidity has been naturally preserved to give the wine a delicacy and freshness typical of some northern Italian Pinot Grigio’s.
It is a beautiful bright wine with aromas of tart apple, nashi pear and a hint of spice on the nose. On the palate it is restrained and mineral with zesty citrus and stone fruit flavours. A crisp and refreshing wine, with delicate intense flavours.
Picked early in the morning, the fruit was delivered cool to the winery. Gentle pressing to minimise phenolics and cold settling preceded a long, cool fermentation averaging 14°C. The fermentation was left to run its course over 14 days leaving a naturally clean, crisp vibrant wine.

This Barossa white has some floral aromas, good weight and viscosity, is juicy, even succulent, on the mid-palate, and finishes fresh and clean.
