Thorn Clarke Eden Valley Pinot Gris
Thorn Clarke
Australia - South Australia - Eden Valley

We believe that exceptional wines are created in the vineyard and that we are custodians, rather than creators of quality. Six generations of rich viticultural and geological family history has gone into creating these wines, which truly showcase the best of the Barossa & Eden Valley.

Pale straw in color with quartz green hues at the edge.  A classic Pinot Gris style with lifted nashi pear, apples and nougat aromas.  The palate is a textural, medium weight style with juicy pome fruits and zesty lime and grapefruit.  A refreshing style with a subtle texture and long, fruit driven finish.

Harvested during the cool of night at optimal maturity. The grapes were destemmed and pressed off immediately with the free run portion separated for the 2021 Varietal Collection Pinot Gris. Fermentation was carried out at cool temperatures to retain the vibrancy of the fruit. The juice was fermented to dryness and has had no malolactic fermentation.

 "Honeyed pear and apple, along with delicate floral and citrus notes, open this aromatic Pinot Gris. The palate is drier than the nose implies, with juicy, lemon-lime acidity. It's brimming with crowd appeal, and varietal character too, and would make for shockingly easy poolside sipping. - Christina PICKARD"
