Vineyards: Fruit for the Tread Softly premium range was Sourced from established vineyards of the Coldstream sub region of the Yarra Valley.
Winemaking: Premium quality Pinot Gris from a single vineyard in Coldstream, 20% of which was wild fermented in old oak, another 20% was cold fermented in tank. It was stirred on its lees monthly prior to bottling to ensure texture.
2021 Vintage: In terms of the 2021 vintage, Spring 2020 was warm and wet, with enough bursts of sunshine to ensure the best flowering and fruit in 3 years. Consistent fruit set matched with plentiful ground water led to vigorous canopy development an large crops. The possibility of disease hung heavy especially after large amounts of rainfall in January and the quality of the vintage was in the balance. However, an auspicious change in conditions led to a two-month run of glorious weather that saw warm days, cold nights and elongated ripening. In terms of quality, tannin concentration and ripeness will be the hallmark of 2021.
Tasting Note: A very interesting Pinot Gris that exudes varietal aromas of Nashi pear and hints of spice. The palate shows good texture with a clean citrus flavour and a nice grip on the finely balanced finish. Pair with pan roasted fish in a burnt butter sauce.
