Foundstone Pinot Grigio 2016

Tasting notes

This Pinot Grigio displays subtle aromas of apple, pear and citrus. The palate is crisp and refreshing with tingly acidity and flavours of lemon, pear and kiwifruit which combine to give the palate good length and intensity.

Producer note

Established by Bob & Cherie Berton in May 1996 with 75 acres of land at 450m above sea level on gently rolling hills in a sub-region of Eden Valley in South Australia, Berton Vineyard has been one of Hallgarten Druitt's most important partners. The superb Reserve Shiraz and Reserve Chardonnay wines are still sourced from this plot. In 2007 Bob purchased the Yenda winery in the heart of the Riverina. This state of the art facility has the capacity to process 20,000 tonnes, and allows Berton Vineyard to produce value for money wines which sit alongside their premium single vineyard offerings.

Soil

Varied ranging from clay, to limestone and sandy soils.

Viticulture

All vines have been spur pruned. Vine age is varied. Vines are planted roughly 1.8m apart with 3.6m between the rows to allow machinery access. The Trellis system is generally a single wire cordon.

Vinification

Harvested at night, the Pinot Grigio grapes were gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel vats. The fermentation process was kept at a steady temperature to retain full varietal characteristics.

Grape

Pinot Grigio 100%

Food match
