A special release, this was the last vintage before our winemaker sold his vineyard. No residual sugar and below organic levels of sulphur. This wine has been aged for 3 years in French hogshead barrels, giving this wine time to develop a huge complexity of mulbrerries, vanilla and spice. With a hint of dark chocolate. 2016 was an amazing year and one that will age well until 2029.
Crisp pink lady apples, white peach and grapefruit zet. As it warms in the glass, hints of honey and peach flesh shine through. Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris are the same grape variety. Pinot Grigio is Italian, Pinot Gris is French. "Grigio' and "Gris" both mean grey, which is the hue present in the colour of the grapes. Winemakers in Australia describe Gris as a late picked, more complex wine with crisp acidity.
Tiny berries went into this wine - you can tell by the deep colour. The flavour comes from the skin, so the smaller the berry, the more colour and flavour. This wine is almost unique at this price point, in that it will get better over 10 years.
Intense sweet cassis fruit nose and lovely blackcurrant juciness on the warming palate with its fine tannins.
