Note the slow colour development of the Alto Pinot Gris over time with the 2013 vintage just taking on a golden hue while the 2016 is still pale
AGEWORTHY

TWO APOGEE ALTO PINOT GRIS  VINTAGES FROM THE CELLAR: 2013 AND 2016

 

As we unveil another vintage of the Alto Gris I thought it would be informative to check the rate of ageing of some favourite past years of this wine. I chose the mid-weight 2013 and the full bodied 2016 as benchmarks (with the 2020 somewhere in between the two).

The glasses above show the
slow colour development of 2013 and 2016 Vintages. Tasting confirms the beautiful flavour development of these wines with time. These wines are helping rewrite the text book on ageability (and indeed seriousness) of Australian pinot gris.

100% Single vineyard. Alc.14.0%. Richest since 2016 with ripe pear and floral notes (musk, rose petal).           
The palate is rounded by second fermentation and is unctuous on the finish, tightened by some firmness.

APOGEE Alto Pinot Noir 2019
100% Single vineyard. Alc.13.5%. 100% French oak.
"A wine for hedonists. Succulent black cherries and redcurrants tumble out of the glass and into your mouth, followed by a flood of fine savoury tannins that flows across the tongue". Max Allen, Australian Financial Review.   
Wine Club Price $56.00
