Cracka Review

This blend of Pinot Gris and friends is a more medium-bodied, aromatic, fruity wine that shows smells of pears, musksticks and citrus on the nose, whilst the plate is fleshy and more-ish, with soft fruit flavours, gentle acidity and a rounded, smooth mouthfeel that would satisfy even the fussiest wine drinker. It's an all-round crowd pleaser!

Winemaker's Notes

Variety: Pinot Gris 87%, Pinot Blanc 5%, Gewurztraminer 4%, Riesling 4%

Appearance: Vibrant straw colour with green edges.

Bouquet: Gently fragrant with classic perfumed Pinot Gris characters of pear, orange blossom and citrus.

Palate: Textural flavours with apple and mandarin, soft acidity, gentle classic 'Gris' style.

Winemaking: Hand picked and gently pressed. Fermented in both tank and cask. Six weeks on lees post fermentation for additional creaminess, complexity and aromatics. Gentle handling and minimal filtration.

Cellaring: Great early drinking and will give even more aromatics with 2 years in bottle.

Food match: These lighter style whites have a touch of zest and herbaceous characters, they match well with:
Cooked seafood - seafood pastas and salads; grilled prawns; fish and chips; scallops
Vegetables - roast pumpkin with goats cheese; stuffed capsicum; vegetarian pastas

Additional information: Suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians.

Alc/vol: 12.5%

Expert Reviews

Campbell Mattinson (2015 Vintage) says
Pinot Gris with help from some other white grape varieties. This is good. Dry. Textural. Almost slatey. But not lacking in fruit. And appreciably perfumed. Green apple, nectarine, spice, a snap of twig. Both exuberant and refreshing.
Ken Gargett (2010 Vintage) says
"From Yarra, 90 per cent gris with riesling and gewurztraminer among the 'friends'. Attractive aromatics, blossoming florals."
Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says
Drop dead gorgeous, laid-back charm, inimitably cool - and that's just the label! Inside, the texture and restraint will immediately transport you to the Latin quarter of 1880s Paris!
