History
We’re excited to introduce you to the newest member of the Generation Series, Mrs. Pinot Gris. Ben wanted to introduce this new vino to the range because of his connection with the Woodside vineyard. He has made many wines from the Woodside vineyard and the consistent quality of the vineyard finally made Ben set aside his prejudices and put it under the Mr. Riggs moniker.

Vineyard
The Adelaide Hills is located in the Mount Lofty Ranges, east of Adelaide. One of the largest geographical wine regions in Australia its diversity in terms of altitude, climate and soil helps to produce its distinctive cool climate wines. 2020 was a challenging vintage in the Adelaide Hills. Luckily, the Woodside vineyard, where the fruit for this wine is sourced, there have been no issues of smoke taint. Although yields were low, quality was exceptional with good flavour and colour. A cool climate vineyard, it is planted in a heavy clay, with less sun exposure and a slightly more part of the vigorous vineyards.

Wine
The fruit was hand-picked, then crushed and de-stemmed. The cleanest press fractions reserved where the wine is lightly fined before fermentation in stainless steel. The wine is temperature controlled fermented at a low temperature between 14-16 degrees for 14 days. Some light mixing on lees for 14 days post ferment to introduce some texture to the wine stabilization and minimal intervention post ferment to prepare the wine for the final filtration and bottle. With a percentage of the fruit making its way to oak for a few months to create texture. This is a delicate, bright and floral expression of Pinot Gris. True to style and textured with notes of pear and white peach.
