The 2016 Pinot Gris is a blend of fruit from the Zanello family in Robe (65%) and the Ellis family in Mount Gambier (35%).
The regions of Robe and Mount Gambier are within the Limestone Coast and the combination of fruit from these vineyards and regions has allowed us to assemble a wine with excellent structure and appeal.
Mount Gambier and Robe both lie on the Southern Ocean and have typically cool to moderate day and night temperatures, ideal for the flavour, structure and textural development of this delicate variety.
The 2016 growing season in the Limestone Coast was highlighted by a mild summer and cool ripening conditions, which proved close to ideal for Pinot Gris. The Robe fruit was the first to be harvested, followed by Mount Gambier over the next three weeks.ANALYSIS AT HARVEST: Be 11.2 to 12.9 pH 3.06 to 3.56 Acid 6.9 to 9.4 g/l Harvest Date 1st to 21st of March BOTTLED WINE ANALYSIS: Alcohol 12.6% pH 3.20 Acid 5.8 g/l Sugar 4.4 g/l Bottled September 2016 TASTING NOTES NOSE: Aromas of fresh green apples and nashi pear with lemon zest and hints of herbal aniseed.
