2020 Protero Pinots
85% Pinot Grigio, harvested on 3rd March, with 15% Pinot Nero harvested on 4th March. The fruit comes from the St Clar vineyard in Maccelsfield, a sub-region in the southern Adelaide Hills mercifully spared the impact of fire and smoke. The grapes were crushed, pressed and blended as juice with minimal extraction and immediately fermented in stainless steel. A small parcel sent to an old French oak barrique in April and blended-back in July.
The wine is pretty, fragrant and lively. Orange blossom leads the charge followed by pear drops, lilac, oleander, musk lollies and strawberry fields. The palate is plush, silky and persistent, offering an avalanche of flavours from pear lollies to sherbert and musk with a grapefruit zest finish that builds length.
