Region: Quindalup - Margaret River, WA
Variety: Pinot Grigio
Words from Ben, winemaker at Blind Corner
This small run of Pinot Grigio was hand-picked and wild skin-fermented - 10 days on skins, like a red wine. It was then foot-crushed and hand-plunged, before going into oak barrels for 3 months to finish ferment. The deep red colour is a result of the young vines’ tiny bunches and, therefore, high skin to juice ration. This is a lovely example of this genre with chinotto-like orange round notes as well as hints of red fruit / pomegranate and smoky finish with a cleaning twist of grip.
