2012 Mount Crawford Pinot Grigio

Comments

The 2012 Pinot Grigio has a lifted pear aroma with subtle spice overtones. The rich palate is medium bodied with excellent texture, ripe pear and spice flavours.

Vinification Notes

The fruit was harvested at night when the winemakers felt the flavours were right. The juice was gently extracted from the fruit to minimise colour pick up (the fruit is a dark pink/grey colour). Cool fermentation was carried out in stainless steel to retain fruit characters. Extended time on lees add to the texture of the wine.

Vintage Notes

The 2012 vintage was preceded by a cool summer and above average rainfall during the winter months. Excellent picking conditions for the Mount Crawford white wines produced fine and delicate flavours typical of the Eden Valley. The mild conditions ensured the reds could be harvested during the night and early morning without heat compromising quality. Several warmer weeks in January and February ensured the reds developed excellent colour and fruit character whilst maintaining good acid struc-ture and overall balance. Vintage 2012 was a ‘light’ year with yields of both reds and whites 20-30% below what would normally be expected.
