Scorpo Pinot Gris 2023 Victoria Mornington Peninsula

$35.95

Scorpo Pinot Gris 2023

The fruit for the 2023 Scorpo Pinot Gris was grown on the old red volcanic soils of the Scorpo Vineyard at Merricks North. The small crop, averaging only 3 tonnes/hectare (1.2 tonnes/acre), was hand-picked in two batches on March 17 and March 22, slightly later than average. Each batch was gently whole bunch pressed, with the unclarified juice fermented in old French oak barriques, where it remained for just over 5 months on gross lees prior to racking and bottling in November.

At this early stage, there are already some lovely lifted aromatics, with abundant spicy apple, lemongrass and honey dew melon, all reflecting the tightly wound flavours on the palate. With the cooler season, an apple-like acid provides a firm backbone, but the intensity of fruit within and a building creamy texture provides a delightful combination that will reveal an evermore complex and expansive palate with time.

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 Australia. Today, the Scorpo family vineyard in Merricks North, on Australia’s Mornington Peninsula combines old world practices with new world flavours. Scorpo Wines combines the family heritage with expertise in growing premium grapes, meticulous attention to site selection, and a best practice approach to vineyard management and processes, trusting the old axiom that great fruit makes great wine.
