2016 Bleasdale Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This is a pretty nifty little PG that is great value, and it's adorned with a bit of gold bling from some wine shows. It's a lighter-bodied, subtle style of wine that has seen a touch of oak, and displays typical gris nashi pears, apples and ginger spice, with a hints of jasmine on the nose and palate, all supported by bright acidity, a rounded mouthfeel, and a crisp finish. Perfect for seafood.

Winemaker's Notes

This delicate wine shows all the spice and perfume we expect from cool climate Pinot Gris. Nashi, ginger and rosewater perfume leads to a rich and textured palate with nutty complexity from the barrel ferment component, finishing crisp, fresh and balanced.

Alc/vol: 13.0%

2016 Bleasdale Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2013 Vintage) says
Hand-picked from three vineyards, and whole bunch pressed; 20% was wild yeast fermented in used French puncheons, 80% cool fermented in stainless steel tanks. Gold medal Melbourne Wine Awards, gold and trophy Adelaide Hills Wine Show, the same at the National Wine Show (all ’13) and Best Other White Winewise Championship '14. Astonishing: pinot gris/grigios are not meant to win gold medals or trophies. Hand-picked, part barrel-fermented in used French puncheons, part in tank. Classic nashi pear fruit, plus nutty complexity and perfectly balanced acidity. The value is blindingly obvious.
