The Mornington Peninsula Chirping Bird range is our flagship range. Grown on our vineyards in Moorooduc on the northern part of the peninsula, the warmer climate allows for that more fuller French style of Gris that we love. Pinot Gris is one of the great food wines and goes so well with a wide variety of foods.
Pinot Gris is one of the early ripeners in our vineyard and consequently we have a luxury of being able to leave it riper further if we want to; which we nearly always do. The richer and more fuller flavours are well sought after but keeping in mind a goodly amount of acid to still retain the zest citrus that complements the pear & nectarine.
Colour: Pale straw with green tinges
Aroma: Full flavour with loads of pear and slight honeysuckle
Palate: Made to the fuller, richer French style hints of citrus and lots of pear with a slight backend honey flavour. Threatens oak flavours
