Heifer Station Pinot Gris V21
This variant is currently sold out
Heifer Station vineyard is situated between 860-900m elevation on the undulating slopes of Mt Canobolas. Planted in 2005 using FVD1V7 Clone on an easterly aspect to maximise on the morning sun.
Off the back of 3 tough years of drought a welcome wet winter followed. The sub soil moisture was in desperate need of replenishment. With soil moisture recharged the vines powered through spring and a cool summer ensured excellent fruit expression and lively acidity in our young whites. Some early flowering varietals struggled with late frost and produced lower than usual yields which resulted in excellent concentrated fruit characters.
Ripe pear, ginger, gooseberry and honeydew melon. Flinty minerality carries the palate. Crisp natural acidity, rich and gernous mid palate with a long lip smacking finish.
