2018 Pinot Gris 'Applewood Vineyard', Taturry

A super fragrant and flowery bouquet, intense stone fruit characters. Apples and pears on the palate with a long bone-dry finish. It's got beautiful balance.The palate is fine and tightly wound together with a precise mineral intensity. Great length and poise, the wine finishes with great purity.

Luke started working on the Mornington Peninsula in 1999 first amongst the vines and then, after a wine science degree, he became a winemaker at Red Hill Estate. Since starting out on his own recently, he farms the 4.5 hectare Mosselini Vineyard which is nearly 20 years old and is planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah.

These are lovely, elegant and refined wines crafted using Burgundian winemaking techniques and minimal intervention. They have quickly found themselves onto some of the best winelists in Melbourne and Sydney and I urge you to consider them for your own cellar.
