2016 Pinot Gris

The very early and compressed 2016 vintage gave fruit of intense  flavour  and  aroma.  Partial  barrel  fermentation  has added texture and depth to the sweet floral and pear characters.  Hints  of  sweet  spice  and  honey  accompany  the stone fruit. This wine has a silky body, mouth‐filling texture and a balanced citrus finish.

This  Pinot  Gris  fruit  was  hand‐picked  in  two  passes  at  differing ripeness to produce a wine  with fine  structure and lifted fruit aromas. The earlier pick provides the tight acid  and  restraint  with  the  riper  pick  adding  body  and  richness.
Partial barrel ferment in older barriques with weekly lees stirring  over  three  months  has  given  extra  depth  and  added complexity on the palate.

The  Deviation  Road  vineyard  is  situated  at  550m  in  the  famously cool Adelaide Hills. The altitude of this particular site  ensures  cool  conditions  during  ripening,  ideal  for  freshness and elegance.

Food Match: Best with seafood and white meats
