AromaFloral and aromatic with lifted spice and delicate rose petal aromas.
PalateA light to medium bodied wine with spicy nashi pear and crisp gala apple flavours. The palate is aromatic, crisp and long with a lingering spiciness and clean refreshing finish.
Growing ConditionsAfter a cool and damp spring/summer, the weather pattern became dry and stable in Tumbarumba for February and March. The Pinot Grigio escaped any disease and remained clean throughout ripening and was picked at optimum ripeness. The lack of any extreme temperatures or any other extreme weather events led to good yields of ripe fruit allowing a long slow ripening with intense fruit flavours and retaining the typically high natural acidity of the region.
Vinification/MaturationIndividual parcels of Pinot Grigio were handpicked at their optimum maturity level and promptly delivered to the winery. Parcels were gently crushed, pressed and then carefully racked off before fermentation. During fermentation, two different yeast strains were utilised, one to enhance aromatics and the other to provide palate texture and weight. The wines were then left on natural yeast lees for a further four months to build texture and complexity. The wine was then blended before bottling.
