Overview

Grown on the outskirts of Tarrington in the Henty region of south-west Victoria, this wine is a clear example of why the match of site (terroir) to variety is so important. Freshness and elegance are the key hallmarks of the cool 2011 vintage, couple this to real flavour and our cellar goals for Pinot Gris are met.

Expert Reviews

From the very cool Western Victorian town of Tarrington, but reached flavour ripeness in this challenging vintage; moreover, the almost fleshy pear and ginger fruit has very good line, length and balance.

Rating 93 - Drink by 2014 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (OCT/2012)

"...this wine is what Pinot Gris is all about: not simply the authoritative ginger-and-pears bouquet with the nose-tickling layer of acrid summer dust, but texture, texture, texture. The stuff is comforting: just the right degree of what pioneering viticulteur Dr AC Kelly daintily called "mucosity" in his 1860's writing.....Lovely acidity; lovely fine tannins, lovely taper... everythings here that should be, in very fine measure. It's perhaps the best Australian example of this misunderstood and tricky variety in recent years." Rating 93 - Philip White - Drinkster

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale quartz green.

Aroma

Fruit aromas of pear, honeysuckle, apple and fresh ginger are complemented by a nutty/cashew underlay.

Palate

Generous flavours true to the bouquet are cut by a balanced thread of crunchy natural acid. A creamy element (maturation on yeast lees) is evident and provides a perfect foil to the natural coarseness of Pinot Gris. Persistent, refreshing flavour length is a feature of this balanced, varietally true, Pinot Gris.

Food Matching

Japanese food, all kinds of seafood, Asian styled spicy dishes - awesome with Tom Yum soup.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Located 20 minutes north of Geelong, 5km east of Bannockburn, approximately 60km west of Melbourne our family winery specialises in Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz . Our wines are made from grapes grown in low yielding vineyards carefully selected for their distinctive terroir, match of site to grape variety and sustainable viticultural practices. Traditional winemaking ensures our wines truly reflect their inherent quality provenance.

Our name Provenance, meaning the place of origin, reflects the emphasis we place on the simple reality that great wines come from great vineyards. For more than 16 years we have searched the southern Victorian regions of Geelong, Ballarat and Henty seeking the best match of vineyard site (terroir) to the best grape varieties. This ensures that we start with the best possible produce and it is from this foundation that we carefully craft silky, balanced wines of restrained power.
