A mouth wateringly delicious Pinot Gris with fine aromas of pears, citrus and white blossom.

91 POINTS - THE REAL REVIEW HUON HOOKE

'Bright lemon and lime tints through the glass. Bosc pear, jasmine, and lime curd aromatics. Palate has a medium weight with a sweet pome fruit core but ample lift and vibrancy with lime zest notes. Acidity is offering a little chalkiness to the texture which makes it crisp and will be best with food.' Stuart Knox

TASTING NOTES

A mouth wateringly delicious Pinot Gris with fine aromas of pears, citrus and white blossom. Loads of fine fruit on the palate nashi pear, pear and citrus with traces of dried ginger and honey popping through. Refreshing natural acidity brings it together in a clean and lingering finish.

TEMPERATURE 8ºC - 12ºC

SEASON

The Mornington Peninsula is Australia’s original and best Pinot Gris region, where the long days and cool nights of summer plus constant fresh sea breezes create wines of clear, bright fruit and balancing natural acidity. The region is characterised by small, premium vineyards and is a popular holiday destination throughout the year.

This wine was grown at Mingary Vineyard in Merricks North, where north facing slopes spill into dense native forest along a natural creek line where wedge tailed eagles nest and mobs of kangaroos take their evening drink. Handpicked Wines began managing the property in 2020 and it is now in conversion to organic certification.

WINEMAKING

From the best Pinot Gris region in Australia, this wine was fermented and matured briefly in oak and stainless steel.
