This wine is named as a tribute to Trevor and Marilyn’s two granddaughters, in acknowledgement of their passion and excellence in ballet and dancing. It’s play on the French ballet term ‘en pointe’, to stand on ones toes in full extension – no easy feat – and something both granddaughters can do with ease and grace.
After the sell out success of our inaugural Pinot Grigio, our second release, from our 2017 vintage, has been created by carefully focusing on our ability to deliver the correct style and ripeness obtainable from our Eden Valley vines. Subtle tropical notes, rich texture, soft acidity and a clean finish, form vital elements of our style.
Tropical aromas take you straight into an intriguingly ripe palate of white peach, stone fruits, pear, honeysuckle and hints of ginger lime, almost endless in length. All beautifully balanced with delicate acidity to finish “on point”.
Food pairing ideas include oysters, sushi, brie cheese or your favourite creamy pasta.
The difference between Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio…
Both wines are made from the same Pinot Gris grape – the difference comes in the winemaking technique. The Italian style Pinot Grigio style wines are typically lighter-bodied, crisp, fresh, with vibrant stone fruit and floral aromas and a touch of spice. A superb summer wine! In contrast, the French Pinot Gris style wines are more full-bodied, richer, spicier, and more viscous in texture. We make ours in the Itialian Girigio style, purely because that’s the way Trevor prefers it.
