Sandro Mosele is one of Victoria's most accomplished vignerons, his celebrated editions of Kooyong and Port Phillip estates are amongst the most cherished renderings of Burgundy styled Pinot Noir in the nation. Mosele has applied his art to a precious parcel of fruit, picked off a single, modest block of vine, grown to the fully fertile soils of a lamb and beef stud, on the brisk, maritime blown coastals of Gippsland South. This is not Pinot for profit, Walkerville represents an aesthetic appreciation of fruit from the farmer, invigorated by the blessings of providence and consecrations of local livestock. A cornucopia of comely characters, forcemeats and fennel, pectins and pith, Walkerville make Pinot Noir as it should be, bucolic, pastoral, articulate of the land whence it came. Partisans and purists of bespoke presentations in Pinot, are quietly advised to pool their pesetas and avail themselves of a case or two Walkerville Pinot Noir, a mere few hundred dozen are made of each..

Vavasour Pinot Gris CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Gris Grigio Marlborough Awatare New Zealand
Vavasour pioneered viticulture in the Awatere Valley, under the imposing presence of Tapuae-O-Uenuku. Vavasour’s vineyard is noteworthy for its wide diurnal temperature swings, it's the combination of soils and clime which shape the inimitable character of Vavasour wine. The refined elegance of their Pinot Gris shows why many others have followed the lead. Sweetly spiced on the nose and palate, yet pleasingly dry, soft savoury aromas are reflected by intensely concentrated flavours on the palate.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
Pinot Gris is harvested off Vavasour's favourite blocks on the Home vineyard throughout the cool of autumn mornings. To ensure concentration and weight on the palate, yields are kept low. After whole bunch pressing, the juices are split and a component is vinified in seasoned old French oak barriques employing wild yeasts from the vineyard, the major portion of fruit is treated to vinification in temperature controlled fermenters. Five months of lees stirring adds richness and texture without sacrificing delicate aromatics. The wine is assembled to display a lovely mix of flavours within a rich palate exhibiting the essential Marlborough zing, followed by a brief spell of maturation.
Pale gold colour. Vavasour shows lifted tropical fruit, melons and citrus, subtle pear and jasmine notes. Made to a dry style, the richly structured palate exhibits luscious layers of fruit, with hints of pear and ginger, followed by a long mineral finish that's so distinctive of Awatere Valley. Pleasingly crisp and dry, very ready to drink now. Introduce Vavasour to a crisply roasted duck and you have a match made in heaven.
