Pale straw with green highlights in colour with aromas of fresh pear juice, white flowers and a hint of feijoa. Cinnamon and baked apple fill out the mid palate after the initial upfront fresh fruits of nashi pear and jasmine. Generous fruit length is complemented by a rich mouth-feel and a creamy lingering finish.
Enjoy with pork fillet with apple and fennel; or vegetable san choy bow.
The fruit for the Y Series Pinot Grigio is sourced from premium viticultural regions of South Australia. Careful hand-picking allowed the grapes to be picked at optimal ripeness. Whole bunch pressing was used to minimize colour and tannin extraction from the pink skins, followed by oxidative handling to naturally remove any remaining colour. Fermentation proceeded on full solids, utilizing yeast indigenous to the vineyard. The wines were then left on their lees until blending, giving the final wine complexity and finesse.
