Regular price $26.00 Sale

"Cold climate Pinot Gris grapes make wines that are crisp, fresh and pure. We believe in giving our vines a lot of attention in the vineyard to bring out the best we can in the wine. The reward for many hours in the vineyard is high quality fruit that is crafted into a well balanced, easy to drink wine."


Vital statistics

Single vineyard Pinot Gris grapes from Mount Tumbarumba Vineyard

Hand picked: 2 April 2023

Bottled:  June 2023

Production: 318 dozen bottles

12.1% alcohol/vol



Very pale straw with a hint of green



White peach fruit aromas with a touch of spice



Rich amalgam of flavours – ripe fruit and spice. Lovely viscous mouthfeel with a cleansing acidity on the finish.


What Alex Mackay (our winemaker) did

The grapes were 100% whole bunch pressed with the juice then fermented in stainless steel. The fermentation was stopped before all the grape sugars were converted to alcohol. This process balances out the natural acidity of the wine and promotes fruit weight on the palate.

This wine says "Sip me and enjoy. I am a wine to relax with. You can have me on my own or with food. I'm easy going and versatile."


What others are saying
