Greg Melick embarked on the prodigal road to gambling and booze as a mere teenager, after winning the daily double at Werribee and spending the lot on good red wine. He ultimately returned to the straight and narrow, achieving the rank of ADF Major General, Senior Law Counsel, Master Wine Judge and Officer of Australia AO. Melick now grows his own, he remains besotted with les grands vignobles de Bourgogne, the illustrious Pinot Noir of Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune. There are few places in the world, more akin to the 1er Grand Cru style of Pinot Noir, than the temperate pastures along Tasmania's River Derwent. It was here in 2002, amongst the woodland idylls of the apple isle, that Melick established Pressing Matters, a meagre four hectares of superior European clones Pinot Noir. Mr..

T Gallant Imogen Pinot Gris CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Gris Grigio Mornington Victoria
Kevin McCarthy and Kathleen Quealy pioneered the development of Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris wines on the Mornington Peninsula in the late 1980s. Pinot Grigio and Gris are the same grape, how they are grown and handled throughout the vinification determines their caste into the French or Italianate styling. T'Gallant are well versed at both, the maestros of Mornington. Italian have a tendency to pick grapes earlier for a racy, savoury style. The French wait for riper flavours, developing richer palates that are complex, fuller and fatter.

T'Gallant's style is expressive of Mornington, deft of handling and highly polished, devout in viticulture and the purity of fruit. Each batch of Pinot Gris is assessed regularly on its journey to bottle, integrity of the wine is paramount. Sometimes the destiny of an individual block has been planned many years in advance. Juices are pressed right out with no fining. Vineyard parcels are all kept separate as a wild ferment ensues without the introduction of any yeasts. Natural warm fermentations achieve lively fruit character and gossamer yeast aromas. Upon completion, parcels are assembled and the finished wine bottled unfiltered nor fined. Time spent on sedimentery lees adds texture and complexity.
Pale gold colour. A generous and weighty Pinot Gris, potent and true to style. The nose is ripe and very complex with floral notes and touches of tropical fruit. Honey and pears, dusty and spicy aromas precede a long, tangy, lemony palate, soft with nut and nougat character. A wine of succulence, generous with palate weight and richness.
