Moorooduc Estate Pinot Gris on Skins 2018

Wrap your lips around this mini Negroni. 'nuff said!

Despite its watermelon appearance, Kate McIntyre says with a cheeky grin, "This is not a Pinot Gris and it is not a Rosé."

Made in the same way Moorooduc handle their Pinot Noir, the fruit was destemmed and soaked with natural fermentation started after five days. It's the opposite of a Rosé with a fine rub up tannin coating the palate. Scents of blue flowers, orange peel and red flowers kick things off. It tastes like Campari, dark plums and cherries with an orange peel tang and a fine spice to finish. Be sure not to drink it too cold so it can express itself. Go here.

Drink now to three years.
