Winery Tasting Notes
A pale straw with a light green hue.
The Oxford Landing Estates 2011 has lifted aromas of new season fresh-cut pear and honeydew melon.
The palate is fresh and tantalising, with a crunchy texture of Nashi pears and Golden Delicious apples. This is a light and bright wine with a fresh finish and a cleansing palate crispness.
An exceptionally cool vintage with steady rain throughout the growing and ripening season meant the vines developed robust canopies, while a relatively cool December, January and February allowed for optimal ripening.
Flavours developed evenly and grapes were harvested in late February through to early March capturing the varietal essence of Pinot Grigio. These grapes, and the indigenous yeast that transformed them into wine, have
created layers of flavour and richness. After fermentation the wine was left on yeast lees for three months and stirred every week to imbue a complexity and creaminess to the wine and a richness to the palate.
Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
