About This Wine
Appearance: Medium green/straw. Aroma: Subtle notes of nashi pear, nectarine and musk, along with a little flint and wet river stones. Palate: The palate is medium bodied displaying the pear and stone fruit mentioned above as well as some mineral/stony textures giving length and structure. Balanced acidity ensures the wine finishes clean and focused. Summary: The Adelaide Hills region has proven to be totally suited to growing Pinot Gris successfully. This is the 15th release of the Pike & Joyce version and is up there with the best we have made. It is still one of the best white wines to pair up with spicy Asian food. Drink now and the next 3-5 years.

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.
