Description

This wine has lifted green pear and melon aromas and flavours and a well balanced crisp yet generous texture, modelled in the classic Italian style with just a touch of fruit sweetness backed by a bright acidity and a lengthy punch of fruit flavour!

Winemaking Notes

The climate and soils of the Limestone Coast wine region enable us to produce Pinot Grigio very similar to the grape’s origin in Italy.
Grapes were harvested at their peak flavour maturity from a single vineyard in the South Australian Limestone Coast wine region.
The juice was separated from skins, cold settled and carefully transported home to Clare and fermented for 14 days. A steady cool ferment ensures a focussed palate with maximum Grigio fruit expression.

Growing Conditions

Vintage 2018 in the Clare Valley saw lower than average rainfall throughout winter and spring, which led to limited subsoil moisture for the beginning of the growing season. Access to water and good irrigation management was critical, allowing canopies to remain healthy and strong. The long warm, sunny conditions of the ripening days and the cool nights has resulted in consistent yields and excellent quality.

2017 Mr Mick Pinot Grigio
Clare Valley hotshot Tim Adams selected the Mr Mick label in honour of his mentor. the late legendary winemaker Mick Knappstein. Clearly pursuing the variety’s Italian style, this is a refreshing and inviting wine, offering waves of crisp, fresh flavours and a hint of fruit sweetness

Mr Mick Pinot Grigio
The perfect summer drink that
has highlights of honeysuckle
and a freshness that is easy to
match with summer dishes.
The crunchy acid makes it on
the drier side, which is refreshing
and ideal for just-off-thebeach
winetime
