Santa & D'Sas Pinot Grigio 2016 (6 x 750mL) King Valley, VIC

Description:

Regions

The King Valley is one of Australia’s most exciting and emerging wine regions. Home to the most picturesque and unspoilt valley in Australia, King Valley benefits from a cool climate with extremely varied terrain, that ranges from snow-capped Alps to sun baked fields.

The Seaon

The 2016 growing season was basically a dry, warm vintage. Yields were moderate with strong agreement on the vibrant aromas and intense flavours in white varieties. Time will define the standouts of the vintage, but the early indication is that the Pinot Grigio is displaying freshness and vibrancy coupled with a great acid backbone and intensity of flavour.

Winemaking

The fruit for the 2016 Pinot Grigio was picked in early February at 11.3° baumé. The grapes were picked in the early morning, pressed off skins into tank for fermentation with high solids to provide complexity and texture while still retaining fresh flavours. Once in tank, fermentation with high solids content at 14.0°C ferment temperature was completed slowly over 4 weeks. This allowed retainment of fresh aromas and flavours while providing creamy texture and mouthfeel. A small proportion was fermented with wild yeasts in older French oak barriques to add richness and extra layers of complexity. The tank and barriques wines was left on yeast lees with weekly stirring to protect the freshness of the wine and adding further complexity. The wine was bottled under screw cap.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Tasting Note

Santa & D’Sas Pinot Grigio has been made to reflect the Italian expression of this grape variety. The nose offers up an abundance of fresh Nashi pear, melon and ginger root. It displays flavours of Nashi pear, green apple and fresh almonds with subtle quince notes. The palate has a bright acid backbone that is crisp right through to a balanced finish.

Food

Match of the vintage: Baked scallops with pancetta. Also try a Cucumber & Grapefuit Spanner Crab Salad or with Creole Prawns with Garlic and Lemon.

Music Match

‘The Beautiful Ones’, Prince.

Pinot Grigio is the Italian name for the French varietal Pinot Gris. The crisp Pinot Grigio style from Northern Italy is to pick the grapes earlier producing a racy and savoury style with a beautiful underlying mineral acidity.
