Pinot Gris 2013


Our pinot gris is typical of the variety where it has found a happy home. A cool year producing a wine with lovely fresh varietal fruit. A pure pinot gris nose smelling of pears and citrus with a long flavoursome palate.

Product Description

Grapes grown entirely on French Island & hand picked on 8 March 2013

The fruit from the D1V7 clone is grown on a north easterly aspect that is open to the cooling sea breezes of Westernport bay, which allows the grapes to achieve a fully developed flavour profile.

The 2013 vintage was relatively warm & dry throughout. The juice was fermented in a stainless steel tank with cooling used to prolong the fermentation time to more than 2 weeks. This helps to retain the fruity flavours & aromas for which pinot gris is known. No oak was used.

The wine exhibits true pinot gris traits with aromas of apple & pears and a long flavoursome palate.

Goes well with Westernport seafood or yabbies from the dam.
