The cooler climate of the Yarra Valley is one of the better locations in Australia to produce classic Pinot Grigio.

Straw colour with the aromatics of pear and white flowers. Crisp on the palate offering fig and stone-fruit flavours supported by fine natural acidity. A medium bodied wine that has a fine length and weight.

Winemaking

Grigio means ‘grey’ and refers to the skin of this variety having a dusty grey colour. This is one of our best selling wines, made from a clone from Northern Italy to ensure the fresh, crisp style similar to those from Friuli.

The fruit was cool tank fermented on lees to create a wine with texture and elegance. Aromatics of honey dew melon, pear and fig. Lively stone fruit flavours on the palate supported by an elegant finish.
