Season we had a tricky lead into the 2022 vintage, with rain and scattered hail damaging canes and potential crop early in the season. A mild crop load coupled with some warmer weather allowed for decent ripening and flavour development ahead of harvest in mid-March.
Winemaking picked early morning as the sun came up, with fruit from a couple of different aspects of the vineyard to ensure we achieved a balance of ripeness whilst retaining zesty acidity. With careful pressing to avoid colour pick up, the pristine juice was cold settled before racking for fermentation. Post fermentation we left a portion of the blend on lees and continued stirring to build palate weight. We also took a clean fraction to preserve the vibrant fruit, before ultimately blending the two parcels together.

Pristine and elegant -Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
The 2022 Small Victories Pinot Gris charms with an entrance firmly in the fun-loving and generous spectrum, with gorgeously bright tropical fruit notes of guava and pawpaw, white florals and a mineral-driven pear drop freshness on the nose. On the palate it's somewhat more serious; dry and savoury with a lilting texture from lees contact, vibrant acidity, and a mouth-watering finish that begs for a little spicy raw fish crudo. -Melissa Moore, winepilot.com
