VINIFICATION:

Pinot Gris (synonym: Pinot Grigio) is an emerging variety in Australia but is famous in other regions of the world (France & Italy). This variety’s name comes from the fact that the grapes berries have a ‘grey’ colour to them which allows a range of styles to be produced from dry crisp whites to full, rich textured styles.

2013 was a warm year in our vineyards with modest yields and excellent flavour.

This vintage of Blackbilly Pinot Gris is made in a crisp, dry style and is varietal but with texture that develops with bottle age. For the first time, oak via barrel fermentation and lees contact, is used in the wine and under a screw cap seal to maximise freshness. It is intended to be drunk as a young wine, served chilled with seafood or as an aperitif. A versatile style.
