The cool Adelaide Hills region has become renown for producing fine, elegant wines. This wine was sourced from Charleston. We have been adventurous with this wine. The grapes ripened slowly and, at the sugar level at which we decided to pick, had developed quite a pink/grey tinge (hence the name, Pinot Gris). We gave the grapes 24 hours of contact with its skins primarily to enhance the palate weight, but in doing so, extracted colour We fined the pressings and blended them back into the free run. Cool fermentation of 2/3 of the wine was complemented with 1/3 fermented in older oak.
