The fruit from this wine comes from the Osborn Vineyard, approximately 5 km south-west of Moorooduc Estate’s McIntyre Vineyard, on the Mornington Peninsula. Because pinot gris is genetically related to pinot noir and has a lot of colour in the skins, when treated in the winery like pinot noir (fermented on skins) it becomes a very pale red wine. It is pink but not a rose. In fact it is the opposite – this is a red wine style made from white wine grapes.
Watermelon pink in colour with pink rose petals, violets, fennel and hints of pickled ginger, rhubarb and red plums. Tangy red berries and Moroccan spice on the palate. Fresh and crunchy with just the right amount of tannin to clean the palate.
Drink cool, not cold, with a platter of smoked charcuteries and soft cheese, or match to sushi, sashimi or a serve of steamed prawn dumplings.
