Description

Vineyard:
Barritt, Barossa Valley.

Winemaking:
The Pinot Blanc was handpicked, chilled overnight and whole bunch pressed directly to four seasoned French 300lt oak barrels. Each barrel was filled with different cuts from the press, the different levels of solids and phenolics giving each barrel its own unique texture and flavour. The barrels underwent indigenous yeast fermentation, after fermentation SO2 was added to three barrels with one left to undergo malo. After five months on lees the four barrels were combined and prepared for bottling.

Tasting Notes:
Pale colour, subtle aromas that build every time you put your nose to the glass, lemon, pear, apple with hints of almond. The palate has lovely sweet fruit with a slight savoury edge followed by the varietal creamy texture and crisp finish.

Reviews

Captivating aromas – pear, musk, grapefruit and tonic water with excellent palate balance of flavour concentration, pithy, talc like mouthfeel and understated acidity. Tony Love

Poached pear, stewed apple puree with lingering young ginger and white florals Pinot Blanc often overlooked is a wine fit for many an entrée or main course with a slight pithey edge that lends way to almost savoury element.
A wine to enjoy with food or on its own, I tend to lean towards using wines like this for those tricky vegetable courses white asparagus, artichoke and squash. Classic Artichokes á la Barigoule would be perfect. Shanteh Wong
