2018 Hentyfarm Pinot Gris
Our Hentyfarm Pinot Gris is a story about an amazing vineyard site in Drumborg, Henty. Owned and tended by ‘biological farmers’ Jack & Lois Doeven. They had a terrible time in the beginning with the planting of Pinot Gris, having to re-plant twice back in the nineties.
Hentyfarm was lucky to be allocated some of this precious fruit again in 2018 . This is the second Pinot Gris we have made working with Ray Nadeson at Lethbridge. He has done it again, using more skin contact fermentation and some barrel work. The style is in keeping with our wines with a clean textured finish.
Colour : Striking Pink Gold colour
Bouquet: Perfumed Nashi Pear, honeysuckle and hay
Palate: Crisp Green Apple and Pear flavours with some lime and grapefruit extending to the finish
Cellaring: This wine is great for summer drinking, cold and fresh with chilli snacks and Asian style dishes.
