Varieties: Pinot Grigio
Region: Limestone Coast
Bottle size: 750 mL
This wine has lifted nashi pear and melon aromas and flavours and a well-balanced crisp yet generous texture, modelled in the classic Italian style with just a touch of fruit sweetness backed by a bright acidity and a lengthy punch of fruit flavour!
The climate and soils of the Limestone Coast wine region enable us to produce Pinot Grigio very similar to the grape’s origin in Italy.
Grapes were harvested at their peak flavour maturity from a single vineyard in the South Australian Limestone Coast wine region.
The juice was separated from skins, cold settled and carefully transported home to Clare and fermented for 14 days. A steady cool ferment ensures a focussed palate with maximum Grigio fruit expression.
Vintage 2019 throughout South Australian saw lower than average rainfall throughout winter and spring, which led to limited subsoil moisture for the beginning of the growing season. Access to water and good irrigation management was critical, allowing canopies to remain healthy and strong. The long warm, sunny conditions of the ripening days and the cool nights has resulted in consistent yields and excellent quality.
It is a great wine just to enjoy on its own, as an aperitif or will pair well with a varied range of food, particularly with spicy dishes or seafood!

2017 Mr Mick Pinot Grigio
Clare Valley hotshot Tim Adams selected the Mr Mick label in honour of his mentor. the late legendary winemaker Mick Knappstein. Clearly pursuing the variety’s Italian style, this is a refreshing and inviting wine, offering waves of crisp, fresh flavours and a hint of fruit sweetness
