Pinot Gris, or Pinot Grigio, is one of the traditional grape varieties grown in the Alsatian region of France and the north east of Italy. Pinot Gris is ever-increasing in popularity and plantings in the cooler, wine-producing areas of Australia.

When grown outside of Europe, the labelling choice between Gris and Grigio is really stylistic – Gris suggesting a white wine of reasonable body and structure, and spicy, floral aromatics; Grigio, a leaner, lighter drink, with crisp acidity.

Both Gris and Grigio mean grey – the name referring to the grey/pink bloom of the grape variety’s skin. If the winemaker chooses to ferment with some skin contact, the final wine may have an attractive pinky/brassy colour.

TASTING NOTE

Vintage

2023

2023

Pale, lemon in hue, the first, fleeting aromas to rise from the glass are filled with a freshness and vibrancy reminiscent of summertime by the coast. Seaspray, zesty Meyer lemon, and tangerine meld with an array of orchard and stone fruits with hints of marzipan, honeysuckle, lemongrass and soft notes of baking spice lying underneath. The palate possesses flavours of grapefruit, pear drop, and Pink Lady apple forming a silky, unctuous texture counterbalanced by crisp acidity and steely minerality.
