Gleeson & Co Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris 2018


Gleeson & Co Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris 2018



This fruit for this wine was sourced from three different vineyards all

located near Birdwood in the Adelaide Hills. The fruit was allowed to

reach quite a high sugar level prior to picking with most parcels

coming in at around 13.0 Baume. The fruit was picked during the cool

of the morning and transported to the winery in Clare in 2 tonne bins.

Growing Conditions

The Adelaide Hills region experienced an exceptionally dry summer

and autumn. Temperatures were not excessive which resulted in well

balanced fruit and very low disease pressure. After a bumper 2017

vintage yields were back to historical averages.


Crushing and destemming commenced straight away to reduce the

level of colour pick up from the dark skins of the Pinot Gris. Pressing

and free run juice fractions were treated separately prior to blending

for fermentation.

Winemaking Notes

This wine provides a very slight apricot hue. with aromas is of floral

aromatic pear and peach. Red apple and hints of sage are also evident.

The palate carries a slight sweetness which combined with the warmth

of the alcohol forms a textured full bodied palate.
