Bleasdale Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris 2015
At WineStar there is just one day a year when we get excited about Pinot Gris or Pinot Grigio and that is the day that Bleasdale release their stunning expression of the variety. That day is now!
The 2012 won two Top Gold Medals - both at Capital city wine shows.
The 2013 won a staggering 3 Trophies, 4 Gold Medals and 96 Halliday Points.
The 2014 won two Trophies and Two Gold Medals, again at capital shows.
The 2015 is absolutely in the groove. The palest of white colour reflecting its youth, it channels Alsace with fresh pear and spice aromas, the palate bursting with fresh fruit characters before cleansing acidity lends itself to outstanding texture. It is incredible that for all of the bling, for all of the media adulation and for the obvious quality of the latest release, this can be had for $14.99
Hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, part fermented in tank, part in used French puncheons. In the same class as its best predecessors, with a textural complexity seldom achieved outside Alsace, and a convincing display of nashi pear and crunchy green apples fresh from the tree. Rating: 94 Points; Drink by: 2019; Price: $19; Date Tasted: Sept 2015; Alcohol: 13%; Top 100 Wines of 2015 - James Halliday; Weekend Australian
