Quarry Hill Two Places Tumbarumba-Canberra Pinot Gris 2018
This Pinot Gris is based on superb fruit from the Tumbarumba wine region in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains - the higher rainfall, cooler temperatures and more sympathetic soil profile make it an excellent location for growing this variety.
However the subtle light copper-pink colour, and the name - Two Places - gives a hint that this wine has a little bit more going on: we've blended in a little fruit from our own vineyard, hence fruit from two places.
The nose exhibits bright notes of honeysuckle, apple, pear and a little spice, with a long smooth palate of nashi pear and red apple.
Chris Shanahan from the Canberra Times wrote:
"A fresh, zesty, light pink dry wine. The savoury palate offers a subtle pear-like flavour, with a dry, gentle grip and warm aftertaste."
Drink to 2020. Winemaker: Alex McKay. 13.1% alc.
