The Josephine

Pinot Gris

2018 RRP $17.50

Horseshoe Bay at South Australia’s Port Elliot was once known as the “ship trap”, with seven ships wrecked there during 1853-64. One of these, the Brigantine “Josephine L’Oiseau” met her fate on 10th July 1856 after she broke her moorings during a gale. Happily, no lives were lost during this ordeal and this Pinot Gris is named in memory of those hardy souls and the ship they sailed in.

Tasting Notes

We harvest our Pinot Gris in the early morning and crush while the grapes are still chilled from the cool Adelaide Hills night air. This ensures we retain the fresh aromas of pear and apple, with a hint of tropical fruit. The palate is delightfully crisp, with lingering green apple flavours.
