Vinification: Pressed quickly to avoid skin contact and colour pickup. Tank fermented to dryness. Vintage Condition: Good winter rains set a positive start to the growing season with ample soil moisture and no frost events. The cooler conditions delayed vine growth and flowering was later than average. Unfortunately fruit set was influenced by the cooler season and some varieties yielded below average. The cool & mild conditions continued throughout and subsequently delayed harvest giving the fruit ample time to develop delicate flavours.

Fresh aromas of pink lady apples and ripe Buerre Bosc pears cascade from the glass. The palate shows green apple and chalky minerality finishing with a soft touch of wild honey. There’s a fleshy tension to the wine from skin contact which is beautifully balanced with crisp varietal acidity. Alcohol 12.9%.

Pinot Gris, or Pinot Grigio, is a versatile white/red grape variety that has pink flesh and can be made clear and white, or dark and orange. Some stunning expressions of white Pinot Gris come from Alsace, where you'll find beautifully fine, textural and aromatic styles with ripe stonefruit, orchard fruit, melon, almond, zesty citrus, salinity, crushed gravel and subtle smokiness. In Italy, it is used to make complex, savoury and textured orange expressions that are more akin to a red wine than white.
