Right around the time that Frank Potts was planting his nascent Bleasdale Vineyards during the 1850s, an eccentric Prussian named Herman Daenke established a homestead along the banks of Bremer River, which he called Metala. The site was planted to viticulture by Arthur Formby in 1891 and became one of Langhorne Creek's most productive vineyards, it continues to supply fruit for a number of prestigious national brands. Legendary winemaker Brian Dolan took the radical step of bottling Metala under its own label in 1959 and won the inaugural Jimmy Watson Trophy in 1962. Two generations later, the brothers Tom and Guy Adams took a similar leap of faith and branded their Metala fruit as Brothers In Arms. The quality of wine re established Metala as a vineyard of global significance and claimed George Mackay Trophy as Australia's foremost export. Cohorts of the stately Langhorne..

Zilzie Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Gris Grigio Adelaide Hills South Australia
The Forbes have been growing fruit for generations, they've won many accolades around the national wine show circuit and supplied grapes to Southcorp for some of Australia's most favourite and memorable vintages. In their quest to craft the essential expression of Australian Pinot Gris, they have collated parcels of hand picked grapes from the balmy, elevated, cool ripening climes of Adelaide Hills. Juicy and decidedly varietal, Zilzie is vibrant with crisp orchard fruit characters and a brisk minerality before finishing, intense, savoury and refreshingly dry.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$215.00
Parcels of Pinot Gris are hand harvested from good vineyards in the Adelaide Hills. The cool growing season and orientation of vines maximises sunlight, aiding in the development of rich and vibrant fruit. Well balanced canopies protect the delicate berries from summer sun. Hand picked grapes are whole bunch pressed to minimise colour and phenolic extraction. Juices are cold settled and treated to vinification through the action of aromatic yeasts at lower temperatures, in a combination of well seasoned oak puncheons and controlled fermenters. Upon completion, the finished wine is promptly bottled to capture and retain the freshness and vitality of Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris.
Pale straw with green hues. Beautiful aromas of nashi pear, citrus and jasmine florals, citrus blossom and nectarine over background mineral characters. A delicate palate with fresh fruit flavours of nashi and nectarine, creamy, richly textured mid palate and a fine minerality. Enjoy with crisp fried whiting or seared scallop sushi.
