Hanging Rock Winery - The Jim Jim Three 2019 (Pinot Gris, Reisling, Gewurtz)
The Jim Jim Three 2019 (Pinot Gris, Reisling, Gewurtz)
The Jim Jim' is a small mountain elevation of 750m, just near the famous Hanging Rock in the Macedon Ranges Wine Region of Victoria. It is cold by world viticultural standards, producing wines that have a lot in common with the cooler regions of France and New Zealand and bearing little similarity to those of the warmer parts of Australia where this variety is often grown.
This wine is a blend of Gewurztraminer, Riesling & Pinot Gris, all grown on the local Jim Jim vineyard. These three cool climate varieties complement each other greatly. The Riesling is crisp, the Pinot Gris adds a savoury note and weight and the Gewurztraminer adds a pretty floral note.
Colour: Mid straw with golden tinge.
Nose: A powerful lifted turkish delight and peach aroma.
Palate: This wine shows layers of complexity. It has both minerality, honey and stone fruit characters, complemented by a round, lush texture through to a clean, crisp, refreshing finish.
