Fox Gordon Charlotte's Web Pinot Grigio 2016

An appealing and fruity wine with notes of ripe pear and an attractive pink hint to the colour from skin contact with the grapes.

Producer Note

Fox Gordon is a family run winery specialising in contemporary, premium and award winning wines from the Barossa Valley and Adelaide Hills. From a diverse selection of grape varieties, each bottle is the ultimate fusion of wine and fashion. Made using the Fox Gordon philosophy of low input and low yield to give maximum flavour, while preserving the inherent qualities of the fruit and the site; these stylish wines are modern, bright and vibrant.

Vintage

In the Adelaide Hills the low winter and spring rainfall meant the vintage started as very dry and in some cases irrigation was required, which is rare for this region. Rain in late January was worth its weight in gold; the outcome was above average yields. The 2016 vintage has been hailed as one of the best all round vintages of the past decade, resulting in excellent quality fruit.

Vineyard

Kersbrook is on the northern end of the Adelaide Hills where the climate is warmer and there is less rainfall than in other areas of the Hills. The vineyard is situated at approximately 480 metres above sea level and has some very high sloped areas. The vines are grown in shallow soils, which have a lot of iron stone through the soil profile.

Winemaking

This wine was made with minimal intervention. The grapes were cool fermented under temperature controlled conditions which preserved the varietal characters of Pinot Grigio.

Tasting Note

Crunchy acidity throughout the length of the palate, with the fruit flavours and texture being sumptuous in the mouth.

Serving Suggestion

A deliciously refreshing and versatile wine that is a great aperitif, but also accompanies light seafood dishes or risotto primavera.
