Ingram Rd is an exciting range of wines from Helen’s Hill Estate, a boutique winery in the renowned Yarra Valley. The Ingram Rd range of wines are made following traditional boutique wine making techniques only found at the top end of the price range; premium fruit from select vineyards in the Yarra Valley and Central Victoria, small batch sizes, open top fermenters, full French oak maturation, “wild” fermentation, hand crafted by a single winemaker...all trademarks of quality boutique wines.
Ingram Rd delivers these qualities, without the price tag! Scott McCarthy has handcrafted these wines from premium quality Yarra Valley fruit which lack the premium price tags.
Pinot Grigio is a grape variety that is one of the oldest in the world but has only recently started to gain a following in Australia. A long time favorite in Europe, especially Italy, Pinot Grigio has now started to be enjoyed by the Australian drinking public for it’s unique flavours and delicious textural qualities.Pinot Grigio can be quite confusing as the styles can vary greatly depending on when and how the winemaker chooses to pick and process the fruit. Gris can be picked early and processed entirely in tank which results in a tight, mineral, sometimes flinty wine, while at the other end of the spectrum, fruit can be picked late, fermented in barrel with the resultant wine being quite viscous, displaying full ripe fruit flavours and an almost oily finish on the palate.
At Helen’s Hill Estate, we combine the best of both methods and produce a Pinot Grigio that is somewhere in the middle! The result is a wine that displays a clean fresh finish balancing both fruit flavours and acidity from tank fermentation with nuances of rich, quite textural flavours on the mid palate from the barrel fermentation. A great white wine for any season.
