- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
The Pinot Gris quickly became the most popular wine in the Vinteloper range when it was launched a few years ago.
And no wonder, it’s so, so, drinkable.
Winemaker Dave Bowley is a firm believer in Pinot Gris’ potential. It is the ultimate ‘smash back’ white. His comes loaded with fresh fruit flavours, mineral-driven acidity and meally, nutty undertones.
If you have fallen in love with Pinot Gris, you’re going to gush for Dave’s.
What It Tastes Like
So more-ish. This combines freshness with a soft, cuddly mouthfeel. Fresh citrus, soft and savoury, almost nutty kind of feel. Some flinty acid keeps it moving at a brisk pace. So yummy.
It’s transcendent. Bright and familiar, the spiced nashi pear and almond meal jump from the glass and you know immediately this is Vinteloper Pinot Gris. Gently rich with zesty river stone and flint and earthy undertones, you’re transported to good times with great friends.
IF YOU’VE GOT YOUR OWN STYLE, EXPRESS YOURSELF.

About the Producer
Vineloper, from the Adelaide Hills, is one of the most progressive and exciting wine operations in the country. David Bowley’s wines are current, topical, presented beautifully and most importantly DAMN GOOD DRINKING! His Urban Winery Project brings the winemaking experience to the people of Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide. Bowley embodies everything about the Australia’s young winemaking culture and he is continuously pushing the envelope.
The Adelaide Hills may be the most energised wine region in the country. The sense of exploration and creativity amongst the tribe of talented young winemakers in this region is unparralelled. The Hills has become crucible of Australian wine talent, offering an array of varieties, from classics such as Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, to new varieties like Nebbiolo and Grüner Veltliner for the younger generation to play with. Every vintage brings new colour and complexity to the rich wine, food and produce culture of this cool climate region.
Pinot Gris is a variety that can take on many forms. In one instance it’s crisp, racy and light as in the case of Pinot Grigio, the next it’s round and voluptuous, and sometimes it presents as pinkish or even red! This versatility makes it an incredibly interesting grape. It loves skin contact, it loves lees stirring, it loves anything a winemaker can throw at it, but always it will show lovely perfume, tasty fruit and excellent mouthfeel. It might just be the most underestimated white variety in the country.
