Pacha Mama Pinot Gris 2023


From northeast Victoria, the King and Alpine Valleys, the wine saw a few hours skin contact which allowed it to pick up a little colour giving it that bronze hue. Fermentation was in a mix of tanks and oak barrels, with a portion then given a few months maturation in barrel. All of this combines to add to the textural aspects of the wine, which are key. The colour is yellow with that hint of bronze intertwined. Spices, pears, stewed apples, and some gentle garden herbs are all present. The flavours are very much upfront and the length should build over time. The palate sees some notes of lemons, pears, and peaches, in a lovely fresh style. It will certainly drink well over the next year to three, even more.
