2015 The Black Chook Pinot Grigio
The fruit for this Pinot Grigio is from South Australia's premium cool climate grape growing region, the Adelaide Hills. the unequivocally cool climate and very old podzolic soils over a quartz base of low to moderate fertility make for ideal growing conditions, giving the Adelaide Hills an enviable and growing reputation for magnificent white grapes, like this classy Pinot Grigio. Due to the cool ripening periods during the spring of 2013, vintage 2014 has delivered exceptional quality and balance.
Picked in the cool of the evening, this ripe fruit was crushed early in the morning and separately handled to free run and pressings. Both batches were briefly settled, then racked with light solids for fermentation.
Slightly golden, pinkish hue.
With classic pear and sweet apple fruit, freshness, texture and crisp acidity, this is a wine beautifully suited to any occasion. Alc/Vol: 12.5%
