Richard Hamilton 'Les Collines' Pinot Gris

The 2021 Richard Hamilton 'Les Collines' Pinot Gris is medium bodied with soft acidity and extended mouthfeel. Flavour is long, juicy and finishes bright and refreshing. Attractive pear with a touch of honey and rose.


The cool Adelaide Hills region has become renown for producing fine, elegant wines. This wine was sourced from Charleston. We have been adventurous with this wine. The grapes ripened slowly and, at the sugar level at which we decided to pick, had developed quite a pink/grey tinge (hence the name, Pinot Gris). We gave the grapes 24 hours of contact with its skins primarily to enhance the palate weight, but in doing so, extracted colour We fined the pressings and blended them back into the free run. Cool fermentation of 2/3 of the wine was complemented with 1/3 fermented in older oak.
