Style: We aim for an expressive, regionally distinctive wine with fresh almond, vanilla and pear
aromas and flavours, which reflect the land that produces this variety.
Vintage: Spring rainfall was below average which minimised disease or other issues and provided
ideal conditions for the flowering period. Dry conditions through early summer helped reduce vine vigour which resulted in balanced canopies. From veraison through to harvest, the weather was ideal with minimal rainfall, and cool nights which resulted in exceptional fruit flavour and concentration along with acid retention. The selected parcels of fruit were harvested during the coolest part of the day and delivered to the winery immediately to preserve the fruit flavour.
Source: This wine comes from our mate’s vineyards located in the middle of the Adelaide Hills region located at Woodside. The vines are tended gently, producing perfectly ripe, healthy
grapes with low yields, and harvested at precisely the right time to best represent a “sense of place.”
MARLEY FARM 2017 PINOT GRIS
TASTING NOTES: Pure fresh pear and effusive melon and apricot on the nose and fresh floral scents weaving their way across the white fruit spectrum. Juist like biting into a fresh pear, more Nashi than other varieties, slightly chilled of course. Crisp and fine. Surprisingly soft considering the zingy start and following tight finish.
