2017 BackVintage Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris - New!
Tasting Notes by Nick Bulleid MW
Background

The 2017 vintage produced some excellent white wines in South Australia. Similar to our 2016 vintage, we have blended two complementary parcels (60:40) of Pinot Gris from different vineyards in the Adelaide Hills for this wine. One of these had a small proportion fermented in used, neutral French barrels where it rested on its lees to gain more roundness, texture and complexity. The other was more Grigio in style – tighter and leaner.

Our resulting wine has the body and rich fruit of the Gris style and is labelled accordingly accompanied by the crisp acidity from the Grigio component.

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

Medium bodied, round and soft. Lemon and stonefruit flavours and a hint of nashi pear. Crisp acidity on the finish.
Try this style of Pinot Gris with seafood, Thai dishes, fine-flavoured chicken dishes and salads.
