Winemaker Notes

Sourced from premium grape growing regions in Victoria, this wine shows a slightly blush colour due to the juice having extended contact with the grape skins. This has produced a complex, textural and slightly savoury Pinot Gris with aromatic nuances of pears, lychees and exotic spice. Hints of spicy pear and red apple appear on the palate.

Pair with Chilli squid and freshly shucked oysters or pan fried salmon with warm chilli lime sauce.

Wine Enthusiast
It's a wonder what a little time on skins can do for Pinot Gris/Grigio. In this wine's case it adds texture and character (and a slightly bronzed color, of course). Bitter almonds, honey, peach pits, red-apple skins, lychees and white pepper all shine through to the palate which is chalk-textured but full of zingy acidity. Still fairly tightly wound, it'll be interesting to see this wine evolve over the next year or two.

McPherson Wines had its beginnings in 1968. Andrew's father , Jock McPherson, worked in wineries in the early days of the industry in New South Wales. From him he learned the joys of winemaking, along with an honours degree in the use of colourful language. In 1974 Andrew began winemaking in his own right, and has spent his working life to date in the wine industry.

In 1993 Andrew established vineyard holdings in the Murray Darling region near Mildura. This region principally surrounds the mighty Murray River, the source of much Australian folklore due to its beauty and majesty. Andrew had his eye on the red brick soil of the Goulburn Valley in Central Victoria, and acquired 350 acres which offered great promise for cool climate red wines which today are used to grow the grapes for the Chapter Three and Basilisk wines.

In early 2000, McPherson Wines opened its world class bottling facility in Victoria. Located next to the winery just outside the town of Nagambie in Central Victoria, we bottle our own wines along with premium wines from wineries all over Victoria.

.Winemaker Jo Nash 2014 release wines have been awarded a total of 4 Trophies and 11 Gold Medals in major Australian Shows, and her outstanding MWC Shiraz Mourvedre 2013 was listed as one of James Halliday's TOP 100 Wines of 2014. After graduating from Charles Sturt University, Jo worked under Andrew McPherson tutelage, and in 2011 was appointed Chief Winemaker at McPherson Wines. Jo's natural affinity with, and passion for winemaking is evident in all aspects of her life. Married to a winemaker, they make small batch wine at home, enlisting their four young children to help pick the grapes and stomp on them with their bare feet.

Nestled into the tip of its southeastern coastline, Victoria is Australia’s smallest mainland state, second most populous and third largest wine producer. Victoria includes the cool regions of Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula and Geelong, made famous mainly by impressive Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The more inland Heathcote and Bendigo lead the way for complex and textured, full-bodied reds. Rutherglen’s fortified wines compete among the best on the planet.

Showing a unique rosy, purplish hue upon full ripeness, this “white” variety is actually born out of a mutation of Pinot Noir. The grape boasts two versions of its name, as well as two generally distinct styles. In Italy, Pinot Grigio achieves most success in the mountainous regions of Trentino and Alto Adige as well as in the neighboring Friuli—all in Italy’s northeast. France's Alsace and Oregon's Willamette Valley produce some of the world's most well-regarded Pinot Gris wine. California produces both styles with success.

Tasting Notes for Pinot Grigio

Pinot Grigio is a dry, white wine naturally low in acidity. Pinot Grigio wines showcase signature flavors and aromas of stone fruit, citrus, honeysuckle, pear and almond. Alsatian styles are aromatic (think rose and honey), richly textured and sometimes relatively higher in alcohol compared to their Italian counterpart. As Pinot Grigio in Italy, the style is often light and charming.

Perfect Food Pairings for Pinot Grigio

The viscosity of a typical Alsatian Pinot Gris allows it to fit in harmoniously with the region's rich foods like pork, charcuterie and foie gras. Pinot Grigio, on the other hand, with its citrusy freshness, works well as an aperitif wine or with seafood and subtle chicken dishes.

Sommelier Secrets for Pinot Grigio

Given the pinkish color of its berries and aromatic potential if cared for to fully ripen, the Pinot Grigio variety is actually one that is commonly used to make "orange wines." An orange wine is a white wine made in the red wine method, i.e. with fermentation on its skins. This process leads to a wine with more ephemeral aromas, complexity on the palate and a pleasant, light orange hue.
