Antonio’s Orange Region Pinot Gris 2017
Antonio d’Onise works at Cowra’s Windowrie winery but makes small batches of wine under his own label. He made this wine from pinot gris grapes grown at Colmar Estate, Orange, located around 900 metres above sea level. The cool growing conditions and low grape yields created a wine with intense pear-like varietal flavour and a little rinse of bronze colour typical of the variety. Fermentation and maturation in oak added texture and backbone to a characterful example of the style. Only 50 cases were made.
