Description

Alluringly fragrant with sweet nashi pear, white stone fruit and mandarin fruit flavours, bundled up in bright natural acidity. Hints of honeydew melon dance around the edges. It’s rich, viscous and elegant, a testament to the winemaking prowess of Don Lewis and Narelle King. Enjoy it alongside snapper in burnt butter sauce.

Vinification

The grapes were machine harvested, crushed and pressed through an air bag press in the protective presence of SO2. Cold tank fermentation was undertaken at between 10 to 12 degrees celsius. The pressings and free run were fermented separately before being blended back with the free run for fining and cold stabilisation prior to bottling.

Maturation

No oak maturation.

Appearance

Pale rose gold in colour.

Aroma

Fragrant pears and peaches on the nose with hints of orange peel, mandarin and passionfruit.

Palate

The palate is full and generous with the classic Pinot Grigio viscosity. Abundant fruit sweetness with mandarins and pears on the palate, well balanced, long and lingering.

Food Matching

Natural oysters.
