WINE REGION:

Vineyard: This Pinot Grigio was sourced from two vineyards, the Majority of the blend was sourced from a vineyard in Blewitt Springs in McLaren Vale. The cooler Blewitt springs area allowed for the gradual development of flavour and ripeness while the balance of the blend was from a vineyard in Gumeracha which contributed elegance and finesse to the wine.


Winery: Destemmed and chilled to air bag press, the juice was extracted as quickly as possible to minimise the extraction of phenolics and colour from the red skinned variety. The juice was then fined and settled for 72 hours until clear and was then racked for ferment. The juice was innoculated with a fruit enhancing yeast and fermented at cool temperatures to preserve the natural fresh fruit characters. The wine was then lees stirred for 3 months to build mouthfeel and texture. The wine was bottled early to preserve the delicate fresh fruit characters.

FOOD PAIRING:

A great match for fresh seafood, poultry dishes with delicate sauces or simply enjoying with friends.
