2023 Pinot Grigio
Pale straw with a bright salmon tinge.
Lifted bouquet of citrus, green apple and honeysuckle.
Citrus rind and apple blossom driving the mid palate, balanced by racy acidity, a mineral backbone, and a long dry finish.
Fruit was crushed and pressed into stainless steel tank. Fermented at 13 degrees C for 14 days, with lees contact post ferment for 3 months, then fined, filtered and bottled in June 2023 to retain fresh fruit driven characters of the variety.
Harvested early to retain natural acidity, producing a dry, fruit driven wine, best consumed over the next few years.
RATINGS & REVIEWS
89 points, Stuart Knox, The Real Review - 'Ultra-pale lemon yellow with a water-white rim. Pear skin, sage, and seaside aromatics. Like to medium in weight, with bright lime and pear fruits filling the core. There's a brightness to the acidity, which brings a clean and fresh appeal to the middle palate and insures it runs reasonably long to a finish that shows a tension between sweetness and phenolic grip'.
