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 green apple, nashi pear and a hint of spice on the nose and a restrained palate of zesty citrus and stone fruit flavours with a touch of minerality on the finish. It is a crisp and refreshing wine which is delicate yet intense and can be enjoyed in its youth or within three years from vintage.
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.
