Small crops but a terrific aromatic season for Pinot Gris. Ripened in the cool of March. Wombat Creek Vineyard the predominant vineyard source in Gladysdale (Upper Yarra).
Hand picked and gently pressed. Fermented in both tank and cask. Eight weeks on lees post fermentation for additional creaminess, complexity and aromatics. Gentle handling and minimal filtration.
Vibrant straw colour with green edges.
Faintly aromatic with classic, perfumed Pinot Gris characters of pear, orange blossom and honeysuckle.
Refined, dry structural palate with green apple and mandarin. Textural, gently aromatic and soft acidity.
