With some imagination, it is possible to see a little more fruit than Grigio would need, but not the rationale for the price.To 2014Australian Wine Companion 2014 Edition
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.2011-2012Wine Taste - Edition 42
To 2013Australian Wine Companion 2013
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.2013-2016The Australian Wine Annual 2013
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!WINE 100 Magazine - 2011 2011
Australian Wine Companion 2012 2011
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 varietyAustralian Wine Companion 2012 2011
Has the fruit others lack, with a fine display of pear, apple and musk, then a cleansing finish.Australian Wine Companion 2010 2009
A pleasant wine unlikely to frighten the horses; gentle citrus and pear by-play; relatively dry finish.Australian Wine Companion 2009 2008
Australian Wine Companion 2005 2004
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.Australian Wine Companion 2004 2003
Crisp… classic… aromatic… a serious Pinot Gris.
Redbank Sunday Morning Pinot Gris 2016 is handpicked, chilled and gently whole-bunch pressed to retain aromatics, with cool fermentation retaining the subtle, delicate aromas and textures of Pinot Gris. The wine is bottled soon after vintage to retain and maximise the delicate varietal aromas.
Tasting note: Fragrant aromas of pears and quince blossom with exotic notes of rosewater and sandalwood. Elegantly structured, this wine shows a pure fruit expression with delicate flavours of nashi pear, lychees and spice. It’s fine, creamy texture is balanced by an underlying core of chalky minerality and persistent fruit flavour. With time in bottle the classic Pinot Gris flavours and texture will continue to grow and mellow. Enjoy now for a crisper style or wait a couple of years if you like Pinot Gris with more flesh and richness. Serve with baked cheesecake, poached quinces and a generous dollop of King Island cream.
Vineyards: Fruit for this wine is sourced from two special vineyard sites in King Valley. The first of these is the Cavedon’s Whitfield Farm, providing fullness of flavour, structure and a distinct minerality. The second is 860m above sea level, the Stella Matutina vineyard of David Burder - one of mainland Australia’s highest altitude vineyards. This fruit exhibits the classic Pinot Gris aromas and flavours of rose petal, blossoms and fragrant spices, combined with a fresh, restrained acidity. The high altitudes and moderately cool summers of King Valley are ideal for the production of high quality aromatic varieties.
