Viticulturist Notes
Fruit for the Pinot Grigio was picked from our vineyards based in the Murray Darling. The juice was run off the skins early, in order to extract only the perfect amount of colour and then inoculated and fermented cool. This allowed the retention of the summer berry characters, as well as retaining colour and intensity. Post fermentation the wine was fined, cold stabilised and filtered, ready for bottling. The entire process from juice to bottle was less than ten weeks, keeping the wine fresh and vivacious.
Wine Harvest Notes
I have been making wine with McPherson Wines for 15 years now, and just when you think you have it sorted, bam another challenge comes your way. Vintage 2020 in itself was manageable and promising, yields were low therefore overall tonnages down. Given yields were low, quality is great - the intensity of both colour and flavour in the reds and whites is excellent - there will certainly be some cracking reds from 2020. We were almost through the harvest when the COVID restrictions hit - which provided another level of complexity. However it all worked out in the end, it usually does, and I hope that everyone enjoys our 2020 wines.
Food Recommendations
Easy drinking with low alcohol and a slight spritz on the palate, our Moscato is perfect for a Sunday afternoon tipple. Served chilled with lime and mint at a garden party, or it partners beautifully with a spicy Asian curry or Thai salad.
