Fruit from Faraday, Victoria this year, pinot gris the sidekick to cabernet sauvignon instead of chardonnay. Alos the fruit this year was picked on the same day, from the same vineyard, and co-fermented for 10 days on skins. Pressed to tank then moved to old oak on fine lees.
Less redskin lollie notes than last year, but still there, partly due to the granite soils but also the cold year and cool climate of Faraday. Darker fruits this year than last year, with very fine tannins and acidity. Grip from the gris. Likes just a little bit of chill."
