Grigio means ‘grey’ and refers to the skin of this variety having a dusty grey colour. Due to our cooler climate, the Yarra Valley is one of the better locations in Australia to produce Grigio with the same zesty characters as from its origin. The fruit was hand-picked to ensure juice contact with the skin is minimal. A cool tank fermentation and constant lees stirring creates an aromatic wine with taste and texture.

“Cinnamon spiced pears, lemon rind and raw peanuts. Fresh and varietal. Time on lees has imparted a creaminess to the palate without carrying too much sweetness. Borderline gris style. Lots of flavour and interest. 91 Points.”
Nick Butler, The Real Review, March 2020 (2019 Vintage)

“Hand picked, bright crisp citrus aromas with a hint of pears, crisp acidity on the palate + a smidge of Nashi pear flavours & nice tight finish OH YUM!!”
Dan Traucki, July 2019 (2019 Vintage)

“Attractive creamy lees and spicy fruit aromas, slivered almonds, the palate spritely and fresh with lively acidityand a crisp finish. A hint of peppermint. An appetising wine.”
Huon Hooke – 90 points (2018 Vintage)

“Reminiscent of an autumnal orchard as you put your nose in the glass, with aromas of ripe apples and pears and a hint of spice in the background. Nice mouthfeel, with a sweet-fruited accent to the flavours – a mirror image of the bouquet – giving it an attractive almost juice-like quality. The acidity is soft but sufficient to do its job of keeping it crisp and fresh. Special value wine.”
