Crushed and destemmed fruit, fermented in stainless-steel tank with cultured yeast. Unoaked. Gentle blush colour. Fragrant gris bouquet of apple, pear, musk and attractive gewürz-like spice.

VINTAGE 2020
There are few Australians who will forget the
2019/2020 summer as bushfires burnt across
the Eastern seaboard after a dry winter and
spring. Thankfully there were no fires in central
Victoria, and although it was smoky at times in
Nagambie Lakes, Tahbilk fruit was not affected
by smoke taint.
The dry winter and spring had our vineyard staff
diligently monitoring soil moisture and irrigating
when necessary. January and February saw
temperatures fluctuating from blazing hot 40
degrees plus days to very mild 20-degree days.
Initially the very hot days seemed to slow the
ripening but, similar to recent vintages, we
commenced picking in early February.
The unforgiving season continued through
harvest, with tropical storms resulting in weekly
rainfall that, whilst irritating to the Vineyard and
Winery crews, was not enough to significantly
impact yields or initiate disease.
All varieties came in with excellent colour and
flavour and 2020 will be a vintage of very
good whites and terrific reds – not unusual
for a dry season.

Campbell Mattinson - The Wine Front
There’s a copper-crimson blush to the colour of this wine, always a good thing with gris. It’s a dry, spicy, almost chalky style with just-enough flavour and just-enough texture to satisfy.

Huon Hooke - The Real Review
The pale-pink colour is more like a Provence-style rosé than a dry white wine, but the colour is perfectly legit with gris. The aromas are sweet and confectionery-like, with strawberry lolly notes. The wine is soft and round, delicate and just slightly off-dry, but not overtly sweet, before a soft and faintly grippy finish.
