2015 Redbank Sunday Morning Pinot Gris

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Easily one of the country's best Pinot Gris, this gently textural wine has both fleshy richness and more than enough acidity to hold it together. It's like a perfectly put together sandwich really - a simply thing perhaps, but when it is done right it can be incredibly satisfying.

Winemaker's Notes

Fragrant aromas of rose, quince blossom and fresh pear with delicate top notes of exotic spice and sandalwood. This wine is restrained and elegant with flavours of quince and nashi pear. A fine mineral acidity underpins the palate, balanced by delicate fruit flavours and a fine creamy texture. The finish is long and chalky.

Enjoy now for a crisper style or wait a couple of years if you prefer your Pinot Gris with more flesh and richness. With time in bottle the classic Pinot Gris flavours and texture will continue to grow and mellow.

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
With some imagination, it is possible to see a little more fruit than Grigio would need, but not the rationale for the price.

Cool climate pinot gris from established vineyards is unusual at this price, which is one reason why this wine shines like a beacon in my tastings every vintage. It’s as crunchy and zesty as ever this year, with classic varietal pear fruit and the lemon freshness of the heights of the King Valley.

Refreshing, bright and crystalline, this spicy, floral and estery gris is scented with fresh apple, pear and a hint of lemon blossom. It's long and focused, with a fine chalkiness beneath its pristine varietal fruit, finishing with a crunchy acidity and a hint of mineral.

A blend of one of Victoria's oldest and one of its highest PG vineyards, this is tight, mineral and fine-boned, with touches of apple, pear and nutmeg. Just the thing for Sunday morning. Or any morning you please!

Plenty of flavour in this wine at low alcohol; ripe pear and gently spicy, with a touch of bath talc perfume; the palate is warm and opulent, but shows line and energy on the finish; a minerally example of the variety

Has the fruit others lack, with a fine display of pear, apple and musk, then a cleansing finish.

A pleasant wine unlikely to frighten the horses; gentle citrus and pear by-play; relatively dry finish.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Light green-straw; citrus, apple, pear skin and spice aromas lead into a lively palate with a touch of CO, spritz evident; 20 per cent of the wine was taken through malolactic fermentation in French oak and matured in that oak for 3 months. This adds to the complexity but does take the edge off the varietal character. A multiple gold medal winner, and well priced. Excellent packaging adds to the appeal.
