Tasting Notes by Nick Bulleid MW
Background

The 2016 vintage has produced some excellent white wines in South Australia. We were delighted to find two complementary parcels of Pinot Gris from different vineyards in the Adelaide Hills for this wine, one of which had a small proportion fermented in used, neutral French barrels where it rested on its lees to gain more roundness, texture and complexity. The second component was more crisp and grigio in style. The resulting wine has the body and rich fruit of the gris style, and is labelled accordingly, but has crisp acidity from the grigio component.


Tasting Notes

Colour
Pale yellow with a hint of bronze

Nose
Fragrant aromas of pear and lemon. White peach adds fullness.

Structure / Palate
Medium bodied, round and soft. Lemon and stonefruit flavours and a hint of nashi pear. Crisp acidity on the finish, with a light brush of texture.

This style of Pinot Gris is its best while young. Try it with seafood, Thai dishes, fine-flavoured chicken dishes and salads.
