This Pinot Grigio is grown on the De Bortoli Melville’s vineyard on the eastern edge of the Rutherglen region. The site is east facing and produces a dry savoury white wine with texture and poise.
The majority of the Pinot Grigio juice was placed in stainless steel tanks under conditions that retain maximum fruit flavour. 10% was fermented in old hogsheads barrels to help add complexity and palate weight. After fermentation the barrels were added back to the tank and the yeast lees in the tank were stirred every two weeks to build texture to the mid palate. The wine was left on yeast lees for 3 months before bottling in August 2019.
Superb for drinking now, but can cellar nicely for up to 3 years.
