Tasting Notes

Mt Difficulty Single Vineyard wines are a celebration of time and place. Named Petrea for the vineyard owner, Bannockburn Bay is a 0.57ha vineyard of terraced Pinot Gris; tucked into the Bannockburn Inlet, planted in 1997. A long dry autumn allowed us to harvest late in the season to produce a ripe, clean, sweet style (49 g/L). White peach aromas combine with golden apple and nectarine counterbalanced by an undercurrent of bright mandarin.

Vintage Notes

 VINTAGE 2017

A very interesting season - overall, we ended up with about an average amount of heat even though the season had a distinctly cool bend to it. A very warm wet spring kicked off the growing season in style with very early bud-burst. Just as we were entering into flowering the weather deteriorated with very cool weather being the norm right through late December. This impacted on flowering with lower than average yield.
