Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris are one in the same grape variety, but quite different in style. Pinot Grigio has gained an immense following in the UK, and most hails from north-east Italy, Veneto. It's lighter in style and best drunk young. Pinot Gris tends to have more body and is more vicious in texture.
The winery, established in the 1990s to produce cool climate Tasmanian wines and to identify outstanding cool climate vineyard sites and plant the variety that harmonises with the vineyard to express the personality of the site. All fruit, sourced from vineyards around the east of the island, is vinified separately before blending, allowing for each vineyard’s essence and character to be expressed and shine through.
Australia is at the start of an exciting wine journey. Having been a successful wine growing country with their classic punchy style, we are now seeing more experimentation and diversity, and it's for the better.Explore Australia
