Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Our approach to Pinot Gris is to keep yields low to get varietal intensity. Most sites are high altitude (350m), providing fruit intensity and aroma. A warmer, lower altitude site gives mid palate weight and texture. The fruit is gently exposed with a light leaf pluck, and picked when on flavour development. In the winery, following whole bunch pressing, pressings are treated oxidatively, fined, then blended back with the free run. A range of ferment temperatures are used to give texture and interest to the wine. Following five months on fine lees, the wine is bottled.

The 2016 Pinot Gris is a lush and striking wine. Bright straw in colour, it has pear, accacia flow and tropical aromatics. The palate is refreshing yet full and driven; punctuated by a mineral cut that flows through to the dry finish."


4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper, Listener Magazine, September 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"A quietly classy, youthful wine that was hand-picked at Bendigo and Lowburn and made in a robust (14.5% alc/vol), basically dry style. It has pure pear, lychee and peach flavours, showing excellent delicacy and depth, and a finely poised, long finish."
