2021 Moss Brothers Moses Rock Margaret River Pinot Gris

‘Moses Rock’ was the name of a wild stallion who roamed the Wilyabrup region of Margaret River in the 1920s. Legend has it, that he was named after the very popular surf break, because of his energy, spirit and wild temperament. He is symbolised galloping across the Moses Rock label.


Nick Bulleid MW's Tasting Note

Background
Margaret River saw an unusually topsy-turvy growing season. This started well, with good spring rainfall and mild weather. November was wet, December and January dry, but then February turned wet again. Great care was therefore needed in the vineyards although, in compensation, the white grapes ripened at lower sugar levels to make stylish wines with good acidity. The grapes for this wine grew in Carbanup in northern Margaret River.

Free-run juice from the crushed and pressed grapes was fermented in stainless steel tanks, while the pressings juice went to aged oak barrels for complexity and texture.

After maturing for six months on yeast lees, the two portions were blended and the wine bottled in August 2021.

Colour
Pale straw with light bronze.

Nose
White peach, with hints of pear and strawberry.

Structure / Palate
Mid to full body. Round and mouth-filling. Full stonefruit flavours finishing dry, with moderate acidity.

This wine thoroughly fits the ‘gris’ name rather than ‘grigio’, having a soft, full palate and only moderate acidity. It is best drunk when young, ideally before the end of 2022.

Try it with seafood, Asian dishes – ideally not spicy curries - or other generously flavoured foods.
