Our Grüner Veltliner was handpicked and destemmed allowing a few hours of skin contact prior to pressing. The wine was naturally fermented in large, old French oak barrels where it remained on yeast lees for 11 months. The wine was bottled, unfined, in March 2019. Straw gold in colour, this wine displays aromas of green apple, pear, white peach, citrus pith and lime blossom. The palate is a fascinating mix of creamy richness and citrusy, mineral freshness with a delicate white pepper spice and savoury finish.
Sinapius (sin-ay-pi-us) is located in the heart of the Pipers Brook wine region in Northern Tasmania and above the banks of the Pipers Brook. The original 2-hectare vineyard was purchased by Vaughn Dell & Linda Morice in 2005. Both of us were born and raised in Tasmania and have a deep-seated love of this beautiful island paradise. Having spent time living, studying and working in the Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and Margaret River, we always knew that one day we would return home to what we believe is the most exciting location in the New World for growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay; one which speaks clearly of its place and variety in its purest form. We are involved in every step of the business from hand tending the vines through to crafting the wines in our onsite winery, and ultimately assisting in distributing the finished product, through our cellar door.
