Overview

Within the small Casa Freschi Adelaide Hills vineyard lies an area of pinot grigio that produces wine with a distinctive fragrance, energy and approachability in its youth. After fermentation and a brief maturation in seasoned French oak barriques, these parcels are carefully blended and bottled young to capture the vibrant fruit, fresh juicy flavour, and opulent texture.

Expert Reviews

The grapes are grown on a single, low-yielding vineyard near Mt Lofty (560-580 m), and were whole bunch pressed, then fermented in old French oak barriques, 27% going through mlf. Even with that mlf, the wine is bracing and cleansing, its pear and grapefruit flavours backed by pronounced acidity. A grigio loaded with personality.Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (AUG/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The wine has fresh pear, apple, pineapple and grapefruit with a hint of spice, nut, yeast and toast complexity in the background.

Palate

The palate is fresh and lively, with concentrated ripe pear and nuts, a soft creamy texture supported by crisp, minerally acidity and finishing with excellent length of flavour.

Cellaring Potential

Now to 2019.
