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 that finish in a wave of flinty pebbles in a stream.
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.
Gape Sourcing Notes:  Werriga Vineyard located on the seaside of Mundulla and was chosen as a source of replacement fruit during the challenging 2020 vintage, and we have been very impressed with the quality of fruit from this location.  It experiences very similar cooler climatic condition’s very similar to that of the Adelaide Hills.
Vintage Report:  The 2023 vintage in the Limestone Coast region presented both challenges and rewards for viticulturists. Despite a drier January, the growing season saw favourable rainfall and cooler temperatures. These conditions allowed for controlled yields and well-maintained open canopies, resulting in some of the finest fruit ever harvested from the vineyards in the region.  From February onward, the trend shifted to cooler, wetter weather patterns due to the Bonney Upwelling, a local oceanographic phenomenon, ensuing in the latest we have harvested Pinot Grigio by nearly two weeks.  This however has resulted in the fruit displaying refined varietal characteristics and good natural acidity.
Winemaking Notes:  4.65 tones of fruit were machine harvested in the cool of night from the Wirrega Vineyard near Mundulla 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 (QA23) which is known for producing fresh fruit focused wines with floral and passionfruit characters.  Bottled with minimal Sulphides and Vegan Friendly natural fining agents.
