Harvested from the Pierrepoint vineyard on the outskirts of the township of Tarrington in the Henty region of south-west Victoria. Terrific natural acid and texture coupled to generous honeysuckle, peach and lime flavours show just how interesting Pinot Gris can be.

Winery Tasting Notes
The natural colour of Pinot Gris is there in all its beautiful glory - brilliant, glowing champagne-like straw yellow.
Classic Pinot Gris fruit aromas of pear, honeysuckle and apple lift out of the glass, a subtle spearmint like aroma can also be detected. These primary fruit characters are complemented by a cashew like nutty lees underlay.
When tasted the fruit aromas evident on the bouquet are repeated on the palate. These generous flavours are in turn complemented by a balanced thread of crunchy natural acid, ensuring both balance and zest. A creamy element (maturation on yeast lees) provides a perfect foil to the natural coarseness of rich Pinot Gris. A feature of this wine is its persistent flavour, built on the balancing components of fruit flavour, lees influence and minerally acid.
Upfront and fresh in character, generous yet fine, a rich, balanced, varietally true, Pinot Gris.
White fleshed fish, mushroom risotto, roast pork and apple, Asia styled spicy dishes - awesome with Tom Yum soup. An absolute taste sensation with fresh crayfish, fresh white bread and butter.
