Starborough wines have been making their mark over the past 3-4 years with their Sauvignon Blanc (Michael Cooper's White Wine Buy of the Year 2016 issue) and also with their consistently 5 star rated Pinot Gris. ​Made in the drier style with richness from partial barrel ferment and extended lees contact. It has nice weight and succulence showing excellent fruit intensity and a silken texture.


Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"An elegant wine with a finely concentrated palate displaying aromatic white and yellow stonefruits lifted by exotic florals, rose-petal elements and complex nutty and flinty nuances. The wine shows excellent fruit intensity and silky texture, leading to a lingering smooth finish."


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2019 (2019 Vintage)
"Attractively fruited and pristine, the delightfully expressed bouquet shows white fleshy nectarine, fresh pear, rockmelon and floral aromas, followed by a succulent palate that is bright and flavoursome. The wine offers elegance as well as up front drinkability, making it highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2021."


4 Stars Michael Cooper (2019 Vintage)
"Freshly aromatic and full of youthful vigour, this full-bodied wine (13% alc/vol) has strong, peachy, citrusy, spicy flavours, good complexity and a dryish, crisp finish."

5 Stars & 18.5/20 (93) Raymond Chan, October 2018 (2018 Vintage)
"Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale edged. The nose is elegant ant tightly bound with a fine core of white and yellow stonefruits along with a little nutty note, unfolding pear elements and chalky minerals. Dry to taste, the palate is softly concentrated with fresh flavours of white and yellow stonefruits with pears and subtle notes of exotic florals. The fruit forms a well-packed heart and flows along a bright and vibrant line with a little underlying power and drive. This is smooth and near seamless with fine acid balance providing energy and tension. The wine carries to an elegant, lingering finish. This is a softly concentrated, elegant dryish Pinot Gris with exotic flavours of stonefruits, pears and florals on a smooth flowing palate with some power. Serve with Asian cuisine over the next 3 years. Fruit from 85% ‘O’Dwyers Farm’ and 15% ‘Starborough Terrace’, fermented in tank with 10% in barrel to 12.8% alc., and 5.5 g/L RS, the wine aged 3 months on lees."
