22 Oct Best Wine in the Southern Highlands
Our newly released Tertini Pinot Gris has recently received a trophy at the New South Wales Wine Awards for the Best Wine produced in the Southern Highlands! We are very excited by this prestigious award for one of our new releases.
Vintage & Winemaking Notes:
The bud burst in 2017 came 2 weeks earlier than previous years resulting in excellent flowering and fruit. A dry Spring/Summer led to perfect ripening conditions post veraison, therefore disease pressures were low and excellent clean fruit was harvested. Add to this the dry summer across the eastern coastline of NSW, leaving the cool nights to help with a slow ripening period. The wine was first stored in cool, stainless steel ferment for 10 days. Aged on lees in tank until July then fined, filtered and bottled. The first show entered resulted in a Trophy for best Pinot Gris, leaving us very excited by this vintages future .
