The challenge when making Pinot Grigio is to pick it in a very narrow window of time. Take it off too early and the resulting wine will be too zippy, lively and austere – too late then you lose the varietal “minerality" and structure. I firmly believe we nailed the 2022.
Hand picked from the Blue Range Estate vineyard on the Mornington Peninsula and pressed gently into French oak barriques and Puncheons for fermentation and maturation.
The wine has lovely aromas of fresh peach, vanilla and honeycomb. The palate displays the perfect balance of richness and mineral-like structure. A great style that will continue to evolve over the next 3 to 5 years.
