2020 Moss Brothers Moses Rock Margaret River Pinot Gris
Nick Bulleid MW's Tasting Note

Background

Margaret River saw an early start to the season, as heavy winter rain gave way to a dry spring with several heat waves.

This brought on the start of vintage to late January, the earliest on record, with fruit quality high.

The grapes came from a single block in northern Margaret River, with the juice split into two portions. The free-run was cold-fermented in steel tanks with a cultured yeast to promote aromatics and the pressings barrel-fermented with spontaneous fermentation aiming for more palate weight. Further texture and body came from maturation on yeast lees.

Colour
Pale bronze

Nose
Intense, showing white peach and pear. Hints of bready complexity.

Structure / Palate
Plenty of rich stonefruit and pear flavours. Full body, yet with good balance of acidity. Good length.

This wine is thoroughly in the rich gris style. It is best drunk while young and fresh, say before late 2022. I’ll enjoy this with seafood, stir-fries and even mild cheese.
