2018 Padthaway Pinot Gris x 6 Bottle Carton

The 2018 vintage comprised a mild February ripening cycle of warm days and cool maritime influenced evenings typical of Padthaway’s moderate cool climate underpinning its reliability and reputation as a consistent producer of high quality Australian Shiraz and white wine grape varieties. 

This is an intriguing clean, crisp and expertly made wine showing a subtle bouquet of nashi pear and pear blossom flavours with a hint of melon and pistachio nuttiness, short-bread mouth coating texture through the middle and after taste..

Grapes were selected and handpicked from manually pruned and extensively crop-thinned vines from our Cardiness vineyard nestled in the cusp of the range amongst the best of Australia’s vineyards. 

A low intervention winemaking process incorporated a three-way blend of early and late picked whole bunches with a 30% incorporation of partial skin10-day fermented fruit to ensure good flavours, fine texture and a balance of acid and freshness. 

Natural yeast in a two-stage tank and old French oak barrel ferment gave a quicker and healthier process with full solids and no finings to create a complex wine with excellent varietal characteristics, length and finish in a vegan friendly wine. A few more words required to balance the text layout.
