Made by Kathleen Quealy - the Queen of Aussie Pinot Grigio.
The fruit is sourced from the Schriber Vineyard located near the town of Mildura in the Murray Darling. It is a family owned and run property situated on the very best limestone soils in the region. Yields are kept low through stringent pruning and hands on management. There is an early picking window that ensures supreme flavour ripeness and the full capture of natural acid. The grapes are whole bunch pressed on a very gentle cycle yielding around 600L per tonne. This excludes any harsh components being extracted and helps to keep the final wine delicate. The juice is fermented at a cool temperature to retain volatile aromatics. There is some lees contact to create texture in the middle palate.
Bright pale gold. Aromatically it shows classic pinot musk, pink fruit and pear. The rolling middle palate is generous with ripe fruits and textured minerality from the limestone soils. The wine finishes crisply and with poise.

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.
Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.
The wine region of Victoria has the highest number of grapevines than any other state in Australia. It is home to over 600 wineries and well-known regions such as Yarra Valley, Heathcote, and Rutherglen. Victoria is situated in the southeastern corner of Australia where due to the location, the climate has a cool maritime influence and is known for its outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, along with producing Australia’s most famed dessert Muscat and Topaque wines.
There are a number of different terroir levels throughout the wine region of Victoria which leads to the production of different ranges of wines. In the southern region of Victoria, the vines are regulated by the cool winds of the Bass Strait. Central Victoria consists of mostly flat terrain that tends to be drier and warmer than the rest of Victoria, which results in more fruit concentrated wines. It may be surprising to note that Victoria is the third most productive wine region in Australia, seeing as it does not have as many areas suitable for viticulture, which has resulted in the cellar door culture of Victoria being concentrated with smaller, but more personal boutique wineries.
Straddling the Murray River in north-west Victoria and western New South Wales, the Murray Darling region is vast, and is the second largest wine producing areas in Australia.
A virtual desert before irrigation and first grape varieties were planted in 1888, and with a long history of wine production and grape growing, Murray Darling provides award-winning wines with well-priced, easy-to-drink styles.
Recently seeing the emergence of smaller 30 boutique wine producers, offering exciting and innovative wines, Murray Darling faces long, hot sunshine hours and coupled with vital irrigation, a variety of warm climate wines are produced, including Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay is the primary variety with fruity softness and generosity.
