Paradigm Hill Pinot Gris 750ml

$68.18 each
Mornington Peninsula

Description

The pinot Gris is crushed and stems removed. The must is left to soak a while before pressing off the juice & overnight cooling before the clear juice is fermented in French oak barrels – one-third new Vosges forrest sourced oak is used [16oC to 18oC]. Batonage [mixing the wine and lees] takes place monthly and the finished wine is bottled after a further 6 months. Spices blend with vibrant exotic fruit aromas and are layered on a citrus backbone – also seen on the palate. The luscious nature of this wine is supported by a rich texture and persistence of flavours leave lingering enjoyment! Whilst our Pinot Gris drinks well whilst young – we can confidently predict a gracious evolution of the wine over a number of years of cellaring.

About Paradigm Hill

A paradigm shift for Ruth and George Mihaly saw us surrender our established careers in food for Ruth and medical research for George to viticulture and winemaking respectively. We have always been passionate about food and wine and our obsessive pursuit of quality and commitment to ecologically responsible practices led us to establish our ideal and environmentally sustainable vineyard/home site on the Mornington Peninsula. The overriding focus is on achieving balanced healthy vines producing carefully selected, exceptional & low yielding fruit. We therefore have only estate grown wines - showing elegance and intensity – but always a purity of varietal expression for each wine - Riesling, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir & Shiraz….. The journey continues…. (Website)
