The Adelaide Hills has an altitude ranging from 400-600m and a rainfall of around 700-1000mm. Soils consist of sandy loam overlying weathered shale and clay, which provide excellent conditions for viticulture. Littlehampton lies on the eastern side of the Adelaide Hills and has a unique aspect for superlative pinot gris. Viticulture was first established in the Adelaide Hills in 1839 by John Barton Hack near Mount Barker, just 5km from Littlehampton. Pinot gris, called tokay d’Alsace in France, grauburgunder in Germany and pinot grigio in Italy, has its origins in France and has become a highly regarded variety around the world.

Winery Tasting Notes
Pale gold with copper hues.
Punctuated floral aromas of almond and citrus blossom with nectarine, passionfruit and ripe nashi pear fruits.
The palate is full of sweet, juicy pear and custard apple flavours, layers of rich minerality and beautifully balanced acidity; creamy mid-palate and excellent length.
Exceptional vintage, 10+ years (from vintage).
