This Pinot Gris is harvested in the early morning and crushed while the grapes are still chilled from the cool Adelaide Hills night air.

It ensures the fresh aromas of pear and apple, with a hint of tropical fruit are retained. The palate is delightfully crisp, with lingering green apple flavours.

general informationHorseshoe Bay at South Australias Port Elliot was once known as the ship trap, with seven ships wrecked there during 1853-64. One of these, the Brigantine Josephine LOiseau met her fate on 10th July 1856 after she broke her moorings during a gale. Happily, no lives were lost during this ordeal and this Pinot Gris is named in memory of those hardy souls and the ship they sailed in.
