Kingston Estate Pinot Gris the diversity across South Australia’s many wine regions ensures that each vintage, wines of very different styles can be produced from the same variety.
The Kingston Estate range of single varietal wines are crafted to display distinctive varietal character through careful region selection. The best characteristics of one or more regions, often a combination of warm and cool climate, are matched and blended to provide the perfect synergy of regional definition and varietal integrity. Pinot Gris is well matched to the cool climate region of the Adelaide Hills where the high altitudes of the vineyards moderates the climate, ultimately producing wines of vibrant character, elegance and fresh natural acidity.
The grapes were hand picked at night to maximize quality and enhance varietal flavour. After crushing they were gently pressed and the juice was chilled, clarified and cool fermented using specially selected yeast strains.
The winemaking focus was on balancing the pear characters with the citrus and aromatics giving the wine length and a fine-tuned palate structure.
