Our previous source of Pinot Gris was adversely affected by bushfire damage and smoke taint. We decided to pick locally. We were grateful to a local grower for being able to supply us with 5 tonne from his newly grafted block on Willow Glen Road. Located, South of Sevenhill.
Pinot Gris grapes have quite dark coloured skins. Having the fruit sourced locally, has a distinct advantage in being able to press the grapes efficiently post harvest, at cool temperatures.The settled juice was fermented using a yeast strain selected to highlight the spicy notes of Pinot Gris.
Sourced from the Clare Valley, the 2020 Pinot Gris displays aromas of spiced pear with hints of apple blossom and musk. The palate has soft acidity and distinct mid palate fruit sweetness.
