A beautiful, lifted, fruit driven wine giving aromas of nectarine, florals, pear, apple, cinnamon and spice with a fabulous bright minerality balanced by a soft finish with great length.

Tasting Notes
Pale straw with aromas of spring florals, nectarine, fig, apple, and a hint of spice. The wine is fresh and fruity with ripe pear and lemon sherbet flavours balanced by a delicate and soft mineral finish. A true “Pinot Grigio” style – fresh, fruity and lively! This wine has a likely lifespan 2019 with optimal year being 2016/17.
Vineyard Notes
Situated in the heart of the cool climate Mount Benson region, the Norfolk Rise Vineyard is planted on 180 hectares of undulating coastal hills. Within 5 kilometres of the ocean at 37 degrees south of the equator, our Pinot Grigio is planted on near perfect “Terra Rossa” soils, providing an ideal level of nutrient and water retention.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were selectively harvested at our Estate Vineyards from mid-February to mid-March to achieve optimum ripeness for the "Grigio" style. Processing was by full protective handling to avoid any juice oxidation or browning. Small portions of chilled grapes were held on skins in order to maximise the flavours in the resulting juice. The juice was clarified and a long, cool fermentation followed in tank using a selection of aromatic yeast strains. To maximise the retention of fresh fruit flavours and aromas, the resultant wine has been bottled under screw cap.
