2020 Vinteloper Pinot Gris

Adelaide Hills, SA

Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris handled minimally, with some serious edges, a creamy palate and wonderful drinkability.



About The Wine

No Pinot Gris from the Vinteloper vineyards into 2020 thanks to the bushfires, so this vintage it is sourced from friendly neighbours in the Kuitpo and Lenswood regions.

Dave Bowley has created a crunchy wine with some skin-contact colour and matching savoury tannins. Wild yeast, extended lees contact and partial barrel ferment all give the wine an extra dimension.

It this wine was a dessert it would be spicy poached pears with vanilla bean cream.

About Vinteloper

Vineloper, from the Adelaide Hills, is the wine baby of charismatic frontman, David Bowley. Bowley's wines are made in contemporary styles, presented beautifully and most importantly, are superb to drink.

Sadly, in December of 2019, Dave lost his newly purchased vineyard to the Adelaide Hills bushfires. But resilient and passionate as he is, Bowley is on the rebuild.

The Vinteloper wines come with some attitude. Bowley himself embodies everything that is awesome about Australia's young winemaking culture. Striking, energetic and downright gluggable, these wines are well worth a look!

From The Producer

We know wine can be transcendent, and after initial bursts of freshness, our Pinot Gris is all about the funk and soul. We say it's like the Muhammad Ali of Pinot Gris. Floats like a butterfly. stings like a bee.

Taking its cue from the faint hue of orange/grey from extended skin contact, the tropical aromas of poached pear and peach jump straight out of the glass. In the mouth the stone fruits are there, with cinnamon and vanilla pod spice, building generosity as it unfurls.
