Overview

The wine is unwooded, with fermentation occurring in stainless steel tanks and then bottled at an early age. A low temperature, protective regime was adopted during its production, thereby preserving the finer fruit characters of these aromatic varieties.

Expert Reviews

HIGHLY regarded Margaret River winemaker Michael Kerrigan says his well-priced Pitchfork range offers “flavour and depth greater than the wine price may suggest”. He’s spot-on with this crisp summery white. It opens with a surge of zesty lime, fruit salad and grassy aromas, following up with a clean, appetising palate. Ralph Kyte-Powell The Age, Epicure.

Pale quartz; a clean and crisp bouquet, with the herbaceous characters that also drive the palate, joined there by a touch of tropical fruit, the finish with bright acidity.

Rating 90 - James Halliday, Austarlian Wine Companion (SEP/2011)

Pitchfork Range

The modern Australian food and lifestyle needs modern Australian wine. Friends and family, casual dining, good primary food ingredients presented simply so as to highlight the quality of the produce. The wine needs to complement this experience and should be clean and bright expressing the quality of the fruit not secondary influences of fermentation, oak and other processing gimmicks. The modern Australian food and lifestyle needs modern Australian wine - there is no better source of modern Australian wine than off an old Australian vineyard.
