Whisson Lake Vineyard is owned & tended by Mark and Andrie Whisson in the Piccadilly Valley, Adelaide Hills. Located on South Australia’s highest commercial vineyard. The land was purchased to plant Pinot Noir in 1985 and Pinot is the sole focus here. The east-facing hillside curves and rises so steeply it’s created its own Burgundy style climate. Sunny and warm in some sections, cool and shady in others. They grow and farm their grapes organically which is translated in the cellar. Wild ferments, no additions winemaking which allows a pure expression of these wonderfully complex and layered wines. The Gris-de-Noir is actually a white wine made from red grapes which are crushes ever so gently to extract white juice. Just one barrel made this year, aged on gross lees to build powerful texture.
