James Halliday – Sourced from a single site in Forreston. Whole-bunch pressed, cool fermented and left on lees to build a modicum of texture. Accents of nashi pear, spa salts and bosc pear are slung across rails of acidity that feel excessively tangy, drawing the flavours from a mid-palate in need of a bit more stuffing. - Ned Goodwin MW

About This Wine

Our Longhop Pinot Gris is sourced from a single site in the small hamlet of Forreston in the beautiful panoramic Adelaide Hills.

THE CRAFT

Partial whole bunch pressed. Natural cold settling before racking with suspended solids remaining for ferment at low temperature for several weeks. Continuing with lees aging before racking and cold settling prior to bottling.

TASTING NOTE

Mouth filling freshly picked orchard fruits of pear, honeydew and apple, followed by lively natural acidity that keeps everything fresh and invigorating. A terrific all-rounder that suits an array of both Asian and Mediterranean inspired dishes.

Adelaide Hills

The Adelaide Hills is one of the largest geographical wine regions in Australia, and amongst the most diverse in terms of climate, soil and topography. Because of this, many different varietals are planted here with the most dominant being Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. It is generally thought of as a cooler region, especially when compared to neighbouring Barossa to the north and Mclaren vale and Langhorne Creek to the south.

NZ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has been popular in Australia for a while now, but Adelaide hills Sauvignon Blanc (the most planted grape in the region) could be considered the Aussie Savvy Blanc. From www.adelaidehillswine.com.au about their Sauvignon Blanc: “Wines that are textured, edgy, vibrant and dry with exceptional fruit definition, length and crispness that marry superbly with summer seafood.”

You can also find some cool climate shiraz from the Adelaide hills, defying the more common big bold style that is usually seen in Australian Shiraz.
