This Heirloom Vineyards Pinot Grigio was produced from our best Adelaide Hills Vineyard whose clones and viticulture embody the very best in cutting edge but old school viticulture and winemaking. Hand tended vines, sorted bunch-by-bunch, naturally fermented free run juice, and bottled immediately to retain the purity of the fruit.
The colour is bright and beautiful with green straw tinges at the edges of the glass. Let it catch the light and marvel at the sparkle.
This wine has an intense aroma of fresh-cut pear and clingstone peach accented by citrus blossom and soft floral notes. Overall it has a 3 dimensional quality to the aromas, ripening rock melon and some mown grass. Citrus blossom and soft floral notes dominate.
The palate has that extra dimension. Fresh, textural acidity is complimented with juicy Nashi pear, Honeydew melon and lemon sherbet flavours all entwined with a middle palate viscosity that makes it both refreshing, soft and juicy. Almost impossible to over-chill this wine can be drunk with an amazing array of foods or just by itself. The acidity and freshness is the key to keeping all the flavour to the forefront.
An extraordinary Pinot Grigio from the Adelaide Hills that will cellar well but is so deliciously perfect now any argument for delayed gratification is almost academic.
