2022 Grandstand Pinot Gris
One of the key grape varieties in both France’s Alsace region and Northern Italy (as Grigio), Pinot Gris is ever-increasing in popularity and plantings in Australia. Both Gris and Grigio mean grey – the name referring to the grey/pink bloom of the grape variety’s skin. If the winemaker chooses to ferment with some skin contact, the final wine may have an attractive pinky blush to its colour.
The 2022 Grandstand Pinot Gris is crafted from quality grapes sourced from premier vineyards throughout the cooler subregions of Western Australia. Pear and honey aromas mingle with melon fruits, almond meal, and zesty citrus notes. The palate displays intense fruit flavours, a gracious texture, crisp acidity, and an intriguing oyster shell edge. A lively, fresh wine, with ample fruit flavours, subtle minerality, and generous length.
