Cracka Review

Abundance. That's the word to use for a wine like this, a Pinot Gris with richness and texture built by picking the grapes ripe and then leaving a little grape sugar for balance. If you're looking for a wine of texture then look no further.

Winemaker's Notes

Winemaker notes: Our Pinot Gris is harvested quite ripe in order to gain rich flavours and texture. The bunches are gently de-stemmed without crushing and the juice pressed directly to stainless steel tanks. The fermentation is carried out with a relatively neutral yeast to showcase the varietal characters.

Colour: Pale straw with golden hues.

Aroma: Ripe juicy pear and white peach fruit aromas, overlay hints of cinnamon, fennel and honey-blossom.

Palate: Full textured and robust, the fruit flavours are dominated by juicy pear and fig, with subtle traces of citrus tart and fresh cut apple. The classic Tasmanian cool-climate acidity balances the wine, and gives focus and length to the generous fruit flavours.

Food pairing notes: Antipasto, Risotto, Calamari, Quiche.

Ageing: Best consumed now to 2019.

Alc/vol: 14.5%
