On the riper end of the spectrum, baked pear tart and a rich mouthfeel. Traditional gris styling, with that texture in place, which does suggest a sense of palate sweetness.

How's it taste?
Pale straw in colourthe wine has white pear and floral aromas. The palate is dry with Nashi pear dominating and lemon nuances which combine with natural crunchy acidity.Enjoy this wine in its youth with lightly crumbed King George whiting or garfish.
How was it made?
The 20th of December 2019 is a date which will not be forgotten in the Adelaide Hills. This day brought the devastation of the Cudlee Creek fires which ravished the Hills. Many homes, agricultural properties and vineyards were lost, including our Chardonnay and Pinot vineyard at the winery in Woodside. Fortunately the vineyards from which we source our Pinot Gris in the Piccadilly Valley were on the south western flank of the fire and were not affected by fire or smoke allowing us to harvest this pristine fruit.Leading into the growing season, the Piccadilly Valley in the Adelaide Hills received lower than average winter and spring rainfall and was also relatively hot until January. This skewed the overall average temperatures as the growing season was only slightly warmer than average at 1447°C days heat summation versus the seasonal average of 1414°C.
