Sixty Spokes Pinot Grigio 2017 (12 x 750mL) Central Ranges

The Pinot Grigio fruit for this wine was picked early in order to retain the crisp fruit flavours & bright, natural acidity of the grapes. Post harvest, the fruit was transferred directly to the press & only lightly pressed to avoid colour pick up from the naturally dark skins of this variety. Post pressing, the juice was clarified and then cool fermented in tank. Post ferment the wine was racked straight off yeast lees to retain the fresh bright fruit characters, then stabilised and filtered in preparation for bottling.

Each Sixty Spokes wine draws its sophistication from the complex fruit flavours generated by the cool climate growing conditions. Made from low yielding grapevines grown in our ancient volcanic soils at an elevation of 550 metres in the rolling hills of the Central Ranges of New South Wales. This elevation and the long cool ripening period produce wines with complexity, elegance and finesse. Due to our cool climate winemaking the Sixty Spokes wines make the perfect food match.
