After a quick trek back to the Bleasdale wineworks, fruit is treated to a prompt vinification and early bottling to retain the vitally luminous expression of Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris.

Bleasdale have been central to Langhorne Creek viticulture for a century and a half, but the estate's association with Adelaide dates back to 1836 when migrant Frank Potts began colonial life as a boat builder. Parcels of Pinot Gris, picked by hand off good Adelaide Hills vineyards, are selected by Bleasdale on the basis of vine maturity and fruit ripeness, consistency of quality and good character. Grapes are whole bunch pressed into a combination of fermenters and seasoned French oak puncheons for a brisk vinification and course of lees stirring battonage, followed by a brief spell of maturation. A timely bottling captures and locks in all the fresh, brightly lit, pear and spice characters of Pinot Gris.
Pale light straw hue. Nutty spice and dainty orange blossom nose over supple hints of barrel ferment, lemon, apples and pear. A well rounded palate, generous with stonefruit flavours while exhibiting fine balance between green vegetable characters, ripeness and crisp acidity. The delicate Bleasdale shows all the spice and perfume expected of slowly ripened Pinot Gris. A stylish aperitif alongside nibbles and oysters, a very good match to poultry and rice vermicelli.
