Vinteloper PG/16 Southern Fleurieu Pinot Gris

(2 customer reviews)

£24.00

Delicate, floral and refined, this Pinot Gris is made with grapes grown by two family farmers in cool climate Fleurieu. Wild yeast fermentation, extended skin and lees contact and ageing in old oak give the wine its complexity, texture and length. Green apples, pear, peach and almond.  A lovely aperitif.

Vinteloper

 

One of the most exciting young winemakers in Australia, David Bowley is Vinteloper: a small operation begun in 2008 in the Adelaide Hills sourcing top-drawer grapes near and far. The wines taste as striking as they look, thanks to David’s wife Sharon’s eye-popping artistry.

A confessed Pinot nut, David was voted winner of the 2016 Pinot Palooza People’s Choice award, for the most popular Pinot Noir in Australia.

He has the classics nailed on, from those stupendous pair of Pinots to elegant, cool-climate Shiraz and the majestic Odeon Riesling, while remaining one of Australia’s most experimental producers, popping up with urban wineries in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney.

Description

Delicate, floral but concentrated Pinot Gris in the Alsace mould made by David Bowley with grapes grown by two family farmers in cool climate Fleurieu. Made with wild yeast which, together with extended skin and lees contact and ageing in old oak, give the wine its texture, complexity and length. Green apples, pear, peach and almond. Superb aperitif.

    Took to neighbours for supper. We happen to have a fish starter so this was the perfect partner. Also light enough to drink as an aperitif, or just wine!

  2. David Fettes

    I found this crisp, subtle and delicious wine such a pleasure. I had it very cold as an aperitif and loved it as a stand alone but would also love to try it with some grilled white fish cooked with a beurre noir sauce. It may become the Interloper in any sensible conversation with me and my wife. The wine is likely to win the day but please don’t tell her.
