Expert Reviews & Awards
"A very good vintage in the Adelaide Hills provides the basis for this nice Pinot Grigio that captures all the best features of this variety as a light, easy drinking wine. Its all pure free run juice and has been simply and minimally handled to ensure it expresses that apple and pear fruit character to perfection. There’s plenty of flavour within its light frame." 92 Points (on the 2021 vintage).

The grapes were picked early to preserve their natural acidity and aromatics. They were then gently pressed, using the free run juice only, and cold fermented in 100% stainless steel. The wine was then lightly fined and immediately bottled, to retain freshness.
About Pinot Grigio/Gris
Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio are made from the same grapes, the difference in the way these wines are named, usually indicates the style, or the country that the wine is made in. Pinot Gris/Grigio grapes develop a distinctive pinkish grey colour on their skins when they ripen. 'Gris' is the French word for grey while 'grigio' means grey in Italian. Some of the world's best Pinot Grigio wines are made in north-eastern Italy, at the foothills of the spectacular Italian Alps. The Alps border the wine regions of Alto Adige, Trentino and Friuli Venezia Giulia. These regions are known for producing high quality Pinot Grigio that is usually dry, light to medium bodied and has a high acidity. This style of Pinot Grigio often shows aromas and flavours of citrus and green fruits. In contrast to Pinot Grigio from Northern Italy, Pinot Gris from Alsace, in Northern France is more full -bodied, rich and textural. The flavour intensity of these wines is also quite pronounced, showing aromas and flavours of dried fruits and honey, at times. High quality Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris is made in Australia, mostly in the cooler regions such as the Adelaide Hills, King Valley, Mornington Peninsula, Orange, the Yarra Valley and Tasmania.
