2018 Manon 'Blush' Pinot Gris

Forest Range, South Australia

Not your standard pinot gris. It's structured and it sits as a dark Rosé. Showing enough tannin grip from a light red but minerality that reflects the quartz and clay soil of a white. The gris was harvested and fermented for two weeks on skins with one third whole bunches (for a slight lift) and then pressed to barrel. Mon and Tim work tirelessly at harvest to ensure that the fruit is all picked at a pivotal point, the result in bottle speaks to this philosophy.

2018 Manon 'Blush' Pinot Gris
About the maker

Perched high up in the Forest Range (South Australia), Manon Farm has a stunning aspect. The climate makes for slow ripening fruit, with no fining, no filtering and no additions. Just organic fruit.

Tim Webber and Monique Milton carry the triple 'No' approach. No filtering, no fining, no additives. Just grapes. The extremely thought out fermentation process and organic (sometimes un-pruned) vineyard presents top quality natural wines.

Manon Farm is perched high up (600 meters elevation) on the Forest Range ridge of the Adelaide Hills nestled between the Basket Range and Lenswood. With a dramatic view straight down to the Gulf St Vincent below. This unique situation is very rewarding for the vines as cooling air is drawn straight up and over the farm from the ocean. This combined with the elevation results in an extra long, slow ripening period for the grapes and ideal growing conditions for their organic approach. Thanks to Manon for their notes!
