One of the most exciting young winemakers in Australia, David Bowley is Vinteloper: a small operation begun in 2008 in the Adelaide Hills, sourcing top-drawer grapes from near and far.
This is how he describes his PG….
“It’s like the Muhammad Ali of Pinot Gris. Float like a butterfly. Sting like a bee. We know wine can be transcendent, and after initial bursts of freshness, our Pinot Gris is all about the funk and soul.
Taking its cue from the faint hue of orange/grey from extended skin contact, the aromas of poached pear and peach jump straight out of the glass. In the mouth the stone fruits are there, with cinnamon and vanilla pod spice, building generosity as it unfurls.”
