Product Description

Consistantly one of the best Pinot Gris in the country.

The fruit is grown on the Scorpo family vineyard. 100% whole bunch-pressed, with the most of the must going straight into old barriques with 100% solids for natural-yeast fermentation. A portion was fermented in concrete tank. The wine is left on lees for approximately 11 months. Suitable for vegans. Lightly yellow copper in colour. Apple, apricot and pear notes combine with musk complexity. More of the same on the palate with the texture that Paul Scorpo's Estate Gris is renowned for. An excellent example of Peninsula Pinot Gris – silky, focused, unctuous.

REVUES ON SOME PREVIOUS VINTAGES

Scorpo Pinot Gris 2012
"Whole bunch-pressed, cold-settled, then wild yeast-fermented in used (four years and older still) French barriques; the intention is to build structure akin to Alsace pinot gris, and succeeds admirably; this lovely mouthfeel does not strip the wine of fruit flavour."
95 Points James Halliday 

Scorpo Pinot Gris 2011
"In 2011 the conditions seemed to encourage complex sulphide aromas in pinot gris on the Peninsula, and this wine is no exception; struck match, bacon fat, candied lemon and lots of spice; the palate is racy on the one hand and richly textured on the other; simply outstanding pinot gris, regardless of origin.
95 Points James Halliday 

Pinot gris and pinot grigio (same grape, different names) come in an assortment of types. Some are awful, some nondescript, some captivating, but it's notoriously inconsistent from a consumer's point of view. This excellent, complex Mornington Peninsula version does the job well. Pear, spice, savoury eggy sulphide and nutty barrel aromas introduce a rich wine of sustained flavour, backed by good acid structure and a sustained finish. 

94 Points Ralph Kyte-Powell, Good Living
