2019 Pinot Gris

2019 Pinot Gris

Beechworth, VIC

Pinot Gris grapes can be quite coloured, even pink in some years; this wine is a lovely yellow/green. The initial palate of pear and beeswax is carried by a zesty acidic backbone. Being a slightly warmer vintage, the palate carries more weight and richness. A delightful Pinot Gris that just asks to be consumed.

Wine Profile
Vinification
Processing involved crush, drain and chilling of the juice, down the road at Oxley. The racked juice was transported to the Hunter Valley for fermentation in stainless steel. As per previous years, approximately 5% received old oak barrel fermentation.
Winemaker Comments
Pinot Gris is widely planted in Alsace, France and is in fact a mutation of Pinot Noir, best noted for its coloured berries and sometimes deeply coloured wine (for a white that is). Pinot Grigio, as it is known in Italy, ranges from a full-bodied white to a rather plain wine if picked before full ripeness. In terms of winemaking technique, both the French and Italians often leave some juice solids in the ferment to produce a fuller style. Here, the wines benefit from the cooler terroir but still have richness to them. The true character of Alsatian Pinot Gris lies somewhere between the intense perfume and musk of Gewurztraminer, and the floral finesse and purity of Riesling. A very compact harvest at Beechworth due to low rainfall and warm weather. All varieties picked under blue skies at perfect ripeness.
Food Pairing
While some Northern Hemisphere examples age well, this wine is best consumed in its youth accompanied by the Alsace specialty, Foie Gras. A consommé will be just as enjoyable.
