Estate-grown (Block 2), hand-picked and whole-bunch-pressed, then some barrel ferment transforms the usual banal nature of the wine; the vintage has played a role in this, but so have astute winemaking choices to invest the wine with structure, leaving the varietal fruit to express itself.
Not only a single vineyard, but a single block, hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed and partially barrel-fermented. The process has added perfume and spice, but not cluttered the mouthfeel, which is like liquid silk, pear and apple the foremost flavours.To 2014Australian Wine Companion 2014 Edition
Pale quartz; not only a single vineyard, but a single block; whole bunch-pressed, the wine undergoes some barrel fermentation and gentle lees stirring to gain mouthfeel and complexity. That complexity is evident the moment you take the wine into your mouth, with a veritable chorus of flavours enhanced by the texture. Up among the very best Pinot Gris.Australian Wine Companion 2013 2012
A savoury and somewhat austere pinot gris that has lithe and juicy acidity driving greener-edged melon and pear, some apple too, plenty of cashewy, savoury, yeasty stuff here too. The palate s plate-like, crisp and crunchy and finishes with pear and musk.Good Wine Guide 2013
Well made, and has more texture than many; likewise has grainy pear and varietal fruit; but it's a very ambitious price.Australian Wine Companion 2009 2008
Winemaking: The fruit was handpicked on the 16th of February & whole bunch pressed. The juice was then cold settled & wild fermented with 50% in stainless steel and 50% in old French puncheons (500L). Bottled in August 2016.
Tasting note: The wine is refined and fresh, with bright fruit aromas and a lovely floral lift. Beautifully textured palate, delicious depth of fruit – with nashi pear and subtle spice. Seamless and refreshing, the wine finishes long and fine.
