Winemaking - The fruit for this wine is sourced from a neighbouring vineyard in Balnarring. The fruit was whole bunch pressed and fermentation commenced spontaneously with ambient yeasts in entirely old French oak barriques. Once dry, the wine was left sur lie for several months prior to bottling. The wine was bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.
What it tastes like - A cool-climate Pinot Gris with mouth-filling richness and bright acidity from the Mornington. This barrel-fermented Pinot Gris is such a delight, especially when it comes from a cooler region. The balance of texture and natural acidity produces such an enjoyable drink.
This Quartier wine opens with aromas of white orchard fruit, alongside subtle florals, and spice. Such a nice weight on the palate as well with more of the same fruit elements, underpinned by spicy acidity and an slight phenolic bite.
ABV – 14%
