Expert Reviews

"Night-harvested, crushed, short skin contact, cool-fermented in used French oak and stainless steel. The oak portion has a significant impact on the bouquet, and a textural flavour that play’s on the palate. Well conceived and executed."

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Copper, bronze with light golden straw - Gris, meaning grey in French, refers to the colour of the grapes; wines made from Pinot Gris often have a slight coppery hue.

Aroma

Rich aromas of pear, citrus blossom, aromatic spice with barrel ferment complexities.

Palate

Crisp pear and subtle spice flavours. Rich and textural with lasting natural acidity. Tasmania’s cool climate influence is evident in its elegance and structure.

Cellaring Potential

Cellar up to 2018.

Food Matching

An ideal wine to serve with Italian style antipasto, oven roasted turkey or other white game meats, chicken liver and brandy pate, risottos, grilled seafood, or an array of Asian and Mediterranean style dishes.
