Higher up the valley is the vineyard of David Burder, one of mainland Australia's highest sites at 860 metres, contributing classic Pinot Gris aromas and flavours of rose petal, blossoms and fragrant spice, combined with a fresh, restrained acidity. Sunday Morning is bottled soon after vintage, maximizing the varietal characters.
