Description

We  celebrate  the  fact  that  we  make  wine  in  a  region  where  vintage  variations  play  an  important  role.  Typical  growing  seasons  are  a  nightmare  for  commercial  wineries  interested  in  making  consistent  but  boring  wines.  For  us,  however,  it  defines  our  interest  in  wine.  We  look  forward  to  seeing  what  Mother  Nature  gives  us  to  work  with  each  year.  It  is  the  effects  of  each  vintage  on  the  finished  wine  that  urges  us  to  start  verticals  of  our  favourite  wines  then  follow  their  evolution  and  discuss  their  merits  at  tastings  with  friends.Our  2017  Pinot  Grigio  hails  from  another  classic  but  low  yielding  growing  season.  Careful  canopy  management,  early  picking  and  selection  from  cooler  microclimates  has  given  us  a  wine  with  very  low  alcohol  %  but  one  that  is  lively,  full  and  chiselled.  Vivace  greets  you  on  the  nose  with  a  very  expressive  note  of  bergamot  rind,  desert  vegetation  (sage)  and  lime  juice.  The  palate  is  packed  with  a  melange  of  citrus  fruit  before  it  finishes  with  tart  apple  and  zest  notes.  The  long  finish  carries  on  way  beyond  what  many  come  to  expect  from  this  humble  but  noble  grape  variety.  Vivace  is  Grigio  gone  to  CrossFit.The  abundance  of  fruity  flavours  and  round  palate  allows  this  wine  to  complement  richer  sauces  and  textures  in  food.  Seared  west  coast  halibut  drizzled  with  a  lemon  thyme  brown  butter  sauce  or  crispy  skin  organic  chicken  with  roasted  garlic  pan  drippings  will  bring  a  new  expression  to  the  fruit.
