2023 Arfion Pinot Grigio
This Pinot Grigio was sourced from the Yarra Station and Cahilton vineyards in the Lower Yarra Valley. The Cahilton grapes were harvested early in the morning and promptly pressed to tank. The fermentation process, spanning 16 days with a peak temperature of 20°C, began slowly. Simultaneously, the Yarra Station fruit was pressed directly into the same tank. After a couple of stirring sessions, the wine was matured on lees for several months before being bottled. This makes for a deliciously crisp and textural expression.
Brilliant water like core with pale straw edges. Lifted aromas of pear, red apple and honeysuckle are trailed by some spice end notes. Delicious pear and red apple skin flavours overlay delicate honeysuckle, quince and spice characters. Nicely rounded texturally it finishes dry with refreshing acidity and a brisk feel to the savoury aftertaste.
Drink over the next year.
