A rich, powerful palate of fig, waxy almonds and sherbet-like acidity. Textured and mouth-filling, the fruit is strong, long and beautifully defined. These fruit flavours are complexed with barrel ferment characters such as nougat. The fruits are enveloped with fine grapefruit pith texture giving extra intrigue.
  • A classic growing season in the Macedon Ranges. A settled flowering led to good crop levels. A wet start to spring meant careful canopy management and crop thinning were required. A perfectly mild and long end to summer allowed fruit to reach is full flavour ripeness, while retaining good acid structure. The 740 meters above sea level elevation site of Little Hampton has extra cool nights, helping to retain natural acidity in the grapes.

    Hand harvested fruit was firmly whole bunch pressed to release the Pinot Gris full flavour profile. Natural ferment occurred in older French barrels. The wine was left to unwind and age slowly on its ferment lees to add generosity. After 9 months the wine was racked and filtered prior to bottling in September 2018.

We originally ordered Shadowfax Little Hampton Pinto Gris 2018 but were told it was unavailable and were we happy to try this one. It is a superb vintage and although not as mellow as the one we 1st wanted it is a very good substitute. Looking forward to enjoy the remainder of our purchase over the summer months in WA.
