Description

Freeman Vineyards is located in the Hilltops region of New South Wales. The vineyard was established in 1999 by Dr Brian Freeman, a prominent Australian wine industry figure and viticulturist, who was previously the professor of Wine Science at Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga. The 40-hectare estate comprises several elevated vineyard blocks located within a radius of six kilometres on a 560-meter ridge. This high and cool location and the well-structured free-draining decomposed granite soils have proven ideally suited to viticulture.

A wine that manages to straddle the rich and textural side of Gris while avoiding oily/cloying characters. Melons, grapes, fleshy stone fruits and a nice hint of spice. The addition of small amounts of Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Aleatico seem to be a masterstroke!

Pinot Gris/Grigio– Gris and Grigio are in fact the same variety and both names mean grey in French and Italian respectively. Which is somewhat deceptive because the grapes can be almost blue when ripe. The great wines of Alsace and North Eastern Italy are often made from this variety. It is being widely adopted around the world too. AKA Grauburgunder.
