Perfumed nose of white florals, pear and

chalky acidity that provides a persistent finish.
Mount Langi Ghiran, a pioneer of cool climate winemaking in Australia, was one of the first wineries to plant Pinot Gris
in the nation. Scarce and limited, we were able to source our first Pinot Gris cuttings from two small growers in 1994.
Over the last two decades, we have honed our skills in the vineyard and employed a range of winemaking techniques to
create our classic Billi Billi Pinot Gris
Sourced from our estate vineyards, the first vintage was produced in 2008 as a Grigio, we have since evolved this wine
into a Gris that captures the intense flavour profile and acid structure that is reflective of our cool climate. The result is an
aromatic wine, with a varietal core, textural depth and fine acidity.
