Pinot Gris’ means ‘little grey’ referring to this varietal’s more delicate hue. Pinot Gris grapes grow in small, cone-shaped bunches, and flourish in slightly cooler climates. Contrary to popular belief, Pinot Gris is actually the same grape variety as its Italian incarnation, Pinot Grigio, the difference is in the winemaking style: Pinot Gris is generally fruitier and even sweeter than Pinot Grigio, which tends to be drier.

Intense, ripe fruit flavours, with a seamless and beautifully clean, long line through the palate. The finish is fresh with pleasantly lingering pear overtones.
First Creek Shiraz
This grape variety seems to have originated in the Northern part of the Rhône Valley in France. It has been known there since the twelfth century.The bouquet is usually distinguished by aromas of black pepper, mulberries and blackcurrants sometimes accompanied by a hint of tar. These are usually present in the palate together with hints of tannin and wood — especially American oak in Australia — and will blend to present a balanced and rich palate with long maturation. The level of acidity present, the richness of palate and fruit quality on the palate will vary according to the climatic conditions of the region of provenance.
