Overview

Pinot Gris thrives in the cool climate of the Adelaide Hills. Stylistically the 2011 Alta Pinot Grigio re!ects the Italian style of winemaking for this variety, and relies heavily on the varietal characters and naturally high acid levels in the grapes at harvest to provide aromatics and structure. The savoury dry finish will compliment an impressive range of foods. Enjoy now, or hold onto it and watch the !avours develop and become more complex.

Winery Profile

Sarah Fletcher came to Alta with an impressive winemaking background: a degree from Roseworthy, and thereafter seven years working for Orlando Wyndham. There she came face to face with grapes from all over Australia, and developed a particular regard for those coming from the Adelaide Hills. So she joined Alta, which had already established a reputation for its Sauvignon Blanc. The portfolio has been progressively extended with varieties suited to the cool climate of the Adelaide Hills. Exports to the UK, Canada and Hong Kong.
