An intensely varietal wine with those aromas of spiced pear dominating the palate. Depth and texture are persistent though the mid palate, with honey notes and zesty lime characters adding further complexity. The fine acid structure completes this wine, delivering balance and length.
Mount Langi Ghiran is a pioneer of cool climate winemaking in Australia, and was one of the first wineries to plant Pinot Gris in the early 90’s. Billi Billi was an Aboriginal King who lived near the property, and owned much of the surrounding land. The creek close to the vineyard was named after King Billi Billi. This wine is created in his honour, and reflects the heritage of the region.
Wholly sourced from the Langi Estate vineyard, these Pinot Gris grapes were harvested on the 12th February to capture its flavour profile and optimum acid structure. The result is a wine that shows great varietal characters, bold texture coupled with a fine acid structure.
