Portsea Estate Pinot Gris 2018

Portsea Estate Pinot Gris 2018

Mornington Peninsula, Victoria   |    750ml   |    13.2%
The Portsea Estate vineyard is located on the century old Tintagel property overlooking Bass Strait at the very tip of Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula; a region well-known for producing some of Australia's leading Pinot Gris (think Scorpo, Ocean Eight and Quealy). After recently tasting this 2018 Portsea Estate Pinot Gris, we believe it's worthy of a place among the region's finest examples; we're obviously not the only ones.

A complex, well-weighted Pinot Gris, the influence of barrel fermentation in quality French oak compliments the lively cool-climate fruit flavours. Strong varietal with cashew, lime, green apple and subtle peach notes, this is a beautifully structured and textured Pinot Gris that will compliment a range of dishes; poultry, seafood and spicy dishes will work particularly well.

Review of the 2017 vintage included below;

"94 Points. Fermented in tank, then aged on light lees in barrel. Shares with its chardonnay and pinot noir sisters a great than average complexity and power of its variety. Of course, it isn't in the class of of its sisters, but it's a good as gris gets. Screwcap. 13.2%. To 2023. Special Value" - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2019.

The Portsea Estate vineyard is located on the century old Tintagel property overlooking Bass Strait at the very tip of Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, in south east Australia. Its unique ‘terroir’ derives from extensive limestone deposits and a top soil of calcareous sand and humus collected over thousands of years.

The free draining, limestone rich soils provide ideal conditions for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to thrive and have produced complex, layered wines of distinct character and minerality.
