On the palate nashi pear, honeydew melon and lemon sherbet flavours combine for a refreshing and juicy taste.
This wine has strong peach and pear aromas, accentuated by citrus blossom and floral notes. Mown grass and rock melon and hinted throughout.
Awards and Accolades
DOUBLE GOLD, Best Value - China Wine & Spirits Awards 2018
2016 Vintage: 92 Points - James Halliday, Wine Companion "Faintly pinkish hue, as expected given some skin contact winemaking with this variety, as appears to be the case here. True to type aromas of brown-skinned pear and red-skinned apple with a savoury element providing some complexity. Clean and crisp on the palate, the sweetish fruit is well balanced by the acidity and a textural astringency which sits comfortably."
From the Winery
This Heirloom Vineyards Pinot Grigio was produced from our best Adelaide Hills Vineyard whose clones and viticulture embody the very best in cutting-edge but old school viticulture and winemaking. Hand tended vines, sorted bunch-by-bunch, naturally fermented free run juice, and bottled immediately to retain the purity of the fruit.
An extraordinary Pinot Grigio from the Adelaide Hills that will cellar well but is so deliciously perfect now any argument for delayed gratification is almost academic.
