The wine is straw in colour with rich aromas of pear and stone fruit.  Complex flavours of pear, white nectarine and citrus linger on the palate.  The acidity is fresh with good textural richness on the palate.

The fruit for this wine was grown on the Marist vineyard located near Mittagong in the Southern Highlands, a cool climate region in New South Wales, at the relatively high altitude of 650 metres.  This vineyard was planted in 1999 and is now managed by Tertini Wines.

The fruit was harvested on 13th March, 2018 at 12.5 Baume.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Notes From The Winemaker: 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 .
