2021 LE FAUVE By Charteris Pinot Gris
Grown by Phillip and Michelle Stivens at Heifer Station Vineyard on the slopes of Mount Canobolas above the town of Orange in the NSW Central high country. The vines sit about 860m altitude and enjoy some of the coolest grapegrowing environs of mainland Australia. With consistent winter dominant rainfall and exceptional volcanic based soils, the scene is set for excellent cool climate winemaking. Aromatic whites, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are perfectly at home in these vineyards. On top of these varieties, if the position of the vineyard is right, even Shiraz can deliver infinitely perfumed wines.
