About This Wine
This 100% barrel-fermented wine is a beguiling pale yellow straw colour. It has lifted aromas of white flowers and musk, white spice, fruit notes of pear and red russet apple, and a hint of flintiness from the natural ferments. The palate is whistle-clean and light on its feet, belying the intensity of its white fruit, nashi pear and mineral tones. It’s very pure, with a sweet mid-palate that dries off as the mouth-watering refreshing acid and gentle phenolics emerge from the wine.
Mornington Peninsula Wines
South of Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula grape growing region has a cool, maritime climate that is most known for their Pinot Noir and Chardonnay production. Other varieties that have seen some success here include Pinot Gris and Tempranillo.
However, it does seem that Pinot Noir is their focus judging from the fact that The Mornington Peninsula International Pinot Noir Celebration is held once every two years. The event displays the region’s capabilities in making some of Australia’s finest Pinot Noir in front of local and international audiences.
James Halliday – Very pale pink; Paul Scorpo has a well deserved reputation for his Pinot Gris, and this isn't going to let him down. Clear pear/poached pear fruit provides excellent mouthfeel, and the finish is long and well structured. 14% alc.
