2019 Barringwood Pinot Gris
The Barringwood vineyard is located on a steep north facing slope over looking the Don Valley in Tasmania’s North West. Established in 1993, the vineyard rises to an elevation of 280m and has a long mild growing season perfectly suited to growing flavoursome aromatic wines with great minerality and acid balance. The 2019 Pinot Gris fruit was harvested at full ripeness to gain rich flavours and texture. Gentle lees stirring was employed.
Brilliant water like colour with a faint tinge of green to the outskirts. Intense aromatics of rosewater, ripe pear and musk blossom from the glass with hints of lychee and spice also evident. Juicy freshly sliced pear and lychee fruits fill the mouth over subtle infusions of musk and light spice. Finishes dry with refreshing acidity and a long aftertaste.
Drink over the next 1-2 years.
