Littlehampton lies on the eastern side of the Adelaide Hills and has a unique aspect for superlative pinot gris. Viticulture was first established in the Adelaide Hills in 1839 by John Barton Hack near Mount Barker, just 5km from Littlehampton. Pinot gris, called tokay d’Alsace in France, grauburgunder in Germany and pinot grigio in Italy, has its origins in France and has become a highly regarded variety around the world.

About the Vineyard

The Adelaide Hills has an altitude ranging from 400-600m and a rainfall of around 700-1000mm. Soils consist of sandy loam overlying weathered shale and clay, which provide excellent conditions for viticulture.

Wine Production

Fermented in tank and held on lees for 6 months with regular stirring to build complexity.

Tasting Notes

Pale straw with green gold hues. Intense aromas of nashi pear, honeysuckle and almond blossom florals with nuances of ginger spice and underlying notes of white nectarine. A focussed medium-bodied palate of stone-fruit is enveloped by elegant layers of baking spices, and beautifully balanced with fine acidity to create texture and a long, crisp finish.
