How's it taste?

In the glass, the wine appears light, with a pale yellow straw colour. The nose displays lifted pear and green apple characteristics along with strong aromas of citrus. A slight textural and richness through to the palate leaving pronounced acidity, a character typical of cool climate vineyards.

How was it made?

The high altitude vineyards in Victoria's King Valley have proven to be particularly good for this Alsatian style, as this wine will attest to. The wine has been made specifically in the classic Pinot Gris style – a slight richness, textured and balanced by good acidity. In comparison to Pinot Grigio, this wine offers greater complexity and a more intense mouthfeel.

Who made it?

Risky business brings together the vision and decades of experience of grape grower/viticulturist Rob Quenby and vintner John Waldron. Together they have been sourcing fruit from Western Australia (primarily Margaret River) and Victoria’s King Valley, producing small batches of fine and distinctive wines from each area. Rob Quenby, operator of Quenby Viticultural Services (QVS) gives Risky Business opportunity to pre-select the best parcels from these great vineyards to use in their range. Their focus is controlling quality thru vineyard selection (often single vineyard) and sustainable vineyard management. Currently Risky Business produce wines with volumes as tiny as 150 cases, with some varieties up to a modest production of 1,500 cases.
