The time has finally come for the return of the much anticipated Pinot Grigio, with our 2017 Vintage edition!
The 2017 Rutherglen Estates Pinot Grigio was harvested on the 21st of February following a very desirable growing season. The fruit arrived to winery at perfect flavour ripeness and was fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel. The low ferment temperature ensures a bright fruit profile in the wine.
Post fermentation the wine was chilled to low temperatures to retain freshness and the lees is continually mixed for three months after fermentation to give texture and complexity.
Made in a way not to dissimilar to that in Veneto, the warm Rutherglen climate and winemaking gives a unique spin on a widely grown variety!
