This wine exhibits a bouquet of white blossom and hints of pure lemon and grapefruit, while the palate reveals ripe, delicious apple, pear and peach flavours.
Food Matches: This wine is best served chilled as an aperitif or alternatively would perfectly accompany a variety of Thai, Indian and Middle Eastern food.
Winemaking Notes: 2.5 tonnes of Pinot Grigio fruit was machine harvested in the cool of night from the Wirrega Vineyard near Bordertown on the Limestone coast. The fruit was destemmed and then delicately pressed under anaerobic conditions to extract only the finest free run juice, which was then sent to tank where it was settled for 24 hours. The clear fraction of juice was fermented in a temperature controlled, stainless steel tank with a specific white wine yeast (strain QA23) which is known for producing fresh fruit focussed wines with floral and passionfruit characters. After stabilisation the wine was lightly fined using Casein (the principal protein in milk) to remove any residual bitterness. The wine was sterile filtered prior to bottling in order to eliminate the potential for any yeast or bacterial spoilage in the bottle.
