Pinot Gris 2019
Varietal: Pinot Gris
Best Consumed: 2020 - 2023
The fruit for the La Vue Pinot Gris was sourced from the Goulburn Valley and the Victorian side of the Murray River. Warm sunny days and cool evening temperatures in the Goulburn Valley are perfect for the growing of good quality Pinot Gris and the blending of the different growing areas adds interesting complexity and layers to the wine. The grapes were harvested during the cool of the night to maintain fruit freshness and gently pressed to minimise phenolic characters. The wine was fermented in various parcels, with a small portion receiving light oak treatment, with extended lees contact to build structure yet retain good fruit balance. As Pinot Gris is naturally a red wine grape, we have allowed the wine to retain its natural colour during the winemaking process, resulting in a fuller bodied wine with a lovely aromatic profile.
Wine Harvest Notes
It’s a wrap for another season and once again Mother Nature has dished us out a few challenges! Due to an extremely hot January vintage began a week or two later than normal, and once we got picking whites and reds rolled in at a cracking pace. White yields were lower than anticipated whilst reds were on par with previous years. Overall it was another great vintage with bright and fresh whites and beautifully coloured, rich reds.
Anything from the sea – grilled scallops with lemon, butter and parsley, chilli squid and freshly shucked oysters or pan fried salmon with warm chilli lime sauce.
