From the Importers' Website: About the Vineyard: Situated on the banks of the Murray River, the Oxford Landing vineyard produces grapes perfect for fresh & varietal wines. The Pinot Grigio is grown on a range of red sandy soils over limestone. Carefully controlled irrigation of these individual sites promotes well-balanced canopies. The fruit ripens in dappled light allowing optimal fruit flavor to develop. Wine Production: This wine is made with 100% natural (or wild) fermentation. These Pinot Grigio grapes, & the indigenous yeast that transformed them into wine, have created layers of flavor & richness. After fermentation the wine was left on yeast lees for three months & stirred every week to imbue a complexity & creaminess to the wine, & a richness to the palate. Tasting Notes: Pale straw in color. The heady aromas are a mixture of feijoa, apple skin and poached pear with hints of cinnamon & spice. This follows through to the medium bodied palate, with flavours of poached pear & cinnamon. Food Pairing: Soft & supple in a drinkable way, yet with enough weight & texture to match an array of dishes such as Vietnamese spring rolls or vitello tonnato.
