Pinot Gris is perfectly suited to the Adelaide Hills, where the altitude of the vineyards moderates the climate, giving cool conditions during the growing and ripening season.
This maximises fruit character and ensures the retention of natural acidity in the grapes. At Nepenthe, they have made Pinot Gris since 1998. Throughout this period they have stayed true to their aim of highlighting the variety’s intriguing varietal character, yet reflecting the influence of each individual vintage.

Winery Tasting Notes
Pale straw in colour.
Fruit aromas of pear and white peach fruit complemented by white flower floral notes.
Stone fruit characters extend on to the palate which is complex, creamy and well balanced by a crisp, clean finish.
Perfect with light chicken dishes such as Chicken Caesar Salad, seafood such as swordfish, salmon and scallops and a great match with a simple plate of antipasto.
