Our Pinot Gris is an invitation to experience the unexpected. Aromatically the wine is floral featuring scents of jasmine and lilac. On the palate, it is full-bodied with luscious ripe pear flavors backed by sensuous texture and crisp, clean, ripe Victoria plums followed by a cream-like finish.

Pair our Mt. Beautiful Pinot Gris with pasta, chicken, salmon, pork and especially rowdy dinner guests.

The 2016 was a good vintage for Pinot Gris; fully mature and aromatically sound fruitThe 2016 was a good vintage for Pinot Gris; fully mature and aromatically sound fruitwas harvested in two batches. An early pick emphasized harmony, aromatics and goodacidity, while the later pick was very ripe with unctuous concentration and texture. Thetexture is emphasized through hand harvesting, gentle whole bunch pressing, andfermentation in a mix of old oak and stainless steel tanks. The Pinot Gris is then aged onyeast lees to add complementing elements to the palate and aroma.

The Pinot Gris is planted on the warm slopes of a north facing hill block of natural uncontoured land, sloping from 55m to 32m above sea level. This site is well suited for Pinot Gris as it is out of the cooler and lower surrounding areas, and the soil mix of silt loam and clay provide excellent water-holding properties. It is all hand tended throughout the season and at harvest. A variety of Pinot Gris clones have been planted including German Geisenheim clone 2/21, new clonal reselections from South Africa (e.g. clones 7a, 14a and 52b and the
Berrysmith clone), which all provide a full-bodied, textural wine with a richness in the mid palate
