THE WINE: The wine has lifted citrus, green apple and nashi pear aromas that follow
through to the crisp, almost crunchy palate, which is superbly balanced with
hints of spicy complexity. True to style the finish is clean and zesty.

THE VINTAGE: The lead up to vintage 2023 was challenging to say the least. Experiencing a third La Niña year in a row made the 2022-2023 growing season a record
setting year from a weather perspective. With volatile weather conditions at flowering, crops were down across Victoria, but fruit quality, and ultimately wine quality, is outstanding.

THE WINEMAKING: The fruit for the 2023 Pinot Grigio was picked in late February at 11.6° baumé. The grapes were picked in the early morning, pressed off skins into tank for fermentation with solids to provide complexity and texture while still retaining fresh flavours. Once in tank, alcoholic fermentation with some solids content at a constant 16°C was completed slowly over 3 weeks. This allowed retainment of fresh aromas and flavours while providing creamy texture and mouthfeel. A small proportion was fermented with wild yeasts to add front palate richness and extra dimension. The wine was left on yeast lees with weekly stirring to protect the freshness of the wine and add further complexity.
