Scorpo Estate Pinot Gris 2017
Passion for wine is in the Scorpo blood. It is a whole family operation stretching across generations and geography – from Sicily to Sardinia and now the heart of the Mornington Peninsula.
A fresh and enticing bouquet of piquant and apples before a subtle palate layered with intriguing notes of lychee, nougat and spiced muffins. The flavours are in delicious harmony with the silky texture while the finish is crisp, elegant and gratifying.

Whole bunch-pressed, cold-settled, then wild yeast-fermented in used (4 years and older) French barriques; the intention is to build structure akin to Alsace pinot gris, and it succeeds admirably; this lovely mouthfeel does not strip the wine of fruit flavour.
