The Inventor 2019 Pinot Gris
"A lovely elegant rendition; the delightfully expressed bouquet shows Gala apple, poached pear, lemon peel and subtle spice notes, followed by a beautifully rounded palate that's succulent and smooth. It's delicately framed by refreshing acidity, making it fabulously drinkable. At its best: now to 2022." *93 points* - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Higher than average rainfall during winter and early spring. Cool night-time vineyard temperatures developed stable flavours and tannins. Harvesting was able to commence with low grape-sugar concentration. Exceptional vintage.
Sourced from selected Pinot Gris vineyards located in the premium growing area of Limestone Coast.
The fruit was picked early morning and immediately pressed to retain the light and fresh characters typical of a Pinot Gris. The wine was fermented cool and matured on leaves for 6 months to build subtle texture and complexity prior to bottling.
Enjoy with seared or grilled fish and simple oven-roasted chicken.
Selected from our most aromatic vineyards, this Pinot Gris exhibits intense aromas of vibrant pear, ripe perfumed apple and lifted white citrus blossom. The fruit driven mid-palate displays complex white fruit flavours with a crisp natural acidity.
