About

The Pinot Gris on Skins project is Kate McIntyre MW’s pet project at family winery, Moorooduc in Mornington Peninsula.

The region as a whole has championed the Pinot Gris variety as something more than just a simple, easy drinking white. The McIntyre’s are the latest to get behind this regional hero.

This spent two weeks on skins before being pressed to barrel where it underwent MLF and hung out for 10 weeks on lees. It’s made like Pinot Noir as opposed to traditional Gris/Grigio.

The result is a wine more red than white. It’s fuller bodied than most Rosé wine, with serious tannin and weight. If you want to see the more interesting side of Pinot Gris, this is it.

What It Tastes Like

“Watermelon pink in colour with aromas of rose petal, red berry fruit and some Campari notes. Lovely perfume and fine tannins on the palate – fresh and bright on the finish. Drink cool but not chilled to best enjoy the unique floral aromas and tannic texture. Enjoy with smoked meat/charcuteries and cheese, or with a really good margarita pizza or pasta with tomato passata.” - Kate McIntyre MW
