Nigel’s Pinot Gris Selection

$200.00

‘Since coming back to Moorooduc, I have gained a newfound appreciation for Pinot Gris and feel it is an underestimated varietal that offers so much more than just being lean, clean with crunchy acidity and drink young.

 

Did you know that PG is one of the top 5 varieties on the peninsula, that equates to 14% of the total plantings?

 

Here at Moorooduc, we like to do things a little different, so you will find our Gris, is going to have a noticeably complex personality compared to some of its other peninsula pinot gris cousins, and will offer more than just an easy drinking warm day picnic wine!

 

One of the most exciting aspects about our Gris, I feel, is once it has been wholly barrel fermented in older oak (10 months), and then further age in the bottle, it has allowed the wine to develop a lovely texture, roundness and complexity, but still a noticeable acidity and freshness, even after a few years in the cellar.

 

Enjoy and don’t forget to have it with food!’

I have chosen this mixed PG pack as I feel it definitely showcases Moorooduc’s talented personality when it comes to making Pinot Gris:

 

2 x 2017 Moorooduc Estate Pinot Gris (pre-release)

2 x 2019 Moorooduc Estate Devil Bend Creek Pinot Gris*

1 x 2013 Moorooduc Estate Pinot Gris

1 x 2020 Moorooduc Estate Pinot Gris on Skins* (pre-release)

 

*The Devil Bend Creek Gris has similar winemaking, with earlier picked fresh bright fruit producing a fresh and bright wine.  Great summer drinking!

**The Pinot Gris on Skins is made using Pinot Noir wine making techniques – fascinating how much texture and flavour is in this wine – treat it like a very light red wine rather than a rose!  Drink cool, not chilled.
