About the Wine

If Pinot Gris/Grigio floats your boat, then give this little number from Sam Scott should hit the spot.

It's Adelaide Hills fruit made in two stages. First, keep it fresh and bright with early picking and quick pressing avoiding any tannin or chew - pristine juice is the most important. Then with careful and clever winemaking, Sam weaves savoury elements throughout the wine with intentional use of oxygen and lees.

The final result is a wine that is both fresh and textural at the same time. It's Pinot Grigio built for drinking with food or without.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Spiced pear and creamy cashews, a hint of green apple and crisp as a winter morning. It puts on weight in the glass as it warms up, there's a little more in this than a straight up and down Grigio and its all the better for it.

Additional Info

From the Producer

Glendeahl Vineyard, Lobethal, Ashwood Vineyard, Woodside & Maple Ridge Vineyard, Hahndorf, Adelaide Hills Vibrant, racy and bright sums up how I think Grigio should be. Aromas of Nashi pears and green apples, which are also found on the dry, crisp refreshing palate. Great intensity and liveliness.

The central ranges of the Adelaide Hills have elevated, cool, south and southeast facing slopes, and these are my pick for Pinot Grigio. Pinot Grigio likes to throw a decent crop so shoot and bunch thinning are necessary to give us the right balance on the vine. The grapes are handpicked, chilled overnight in a large cool room and then whole bunch pressed the following day. This is to get the most pristine free-run juice possible, with no phenolics.

After we have gone to all those careful lengths we take the gloves off, allow the juice to oxidize and then grab some fluffy lees into the ferment. This is where we get the savoury note to the bright, vibrant wine. Bottled in June 2017.
