Mazzini 2021 Pinot Gris is a blend of fruit sourced from the Hillside Haven vineyard at the base of Mt Anakie and Oakdene vineyard on the Bellarine Peninsula. These two sub regions of Geelong are true to style with the Moorabool Valley component noted for power and structure and Bellarine Peninsula bringing freshness and minerality to the wine. A small amount of Fiano was blended with the Pinot Gris to increase acidity and add texture. Matured in a combination of French oak and Amphora for 4 months prior to bottling..
Don’t take our word for it…

“Golden apple, pear, brine, a little perfume and a fair amount of spice, and this umami character – nuts and chicken sort of thing. It’s saline, crisp acidity, fine chalky texture and gentle pear skin grip, dry with ginger and spice to close, with excellent length and a little pleasant bitterness to cinch it. The Fiano component almost certainly adds a little X-Factor.”

“Perfumed and spicy, brown pear, sea spray. It’s juicy but fine, ginger, pear and raw almond, fine chalky texture with a pear skin grip, freshness too, some lemon cordial stuff happening on a finish that lingers long with spice and nutty/umami flavours. So nicely done.”

“It’s a good wine, has a bit of funk, chicken stock and brine character in with green pear and red apple, and a little cinnamon spice. Texture is good, fine and gently chalky, a nutty almond and sake-like flavour, fresh acidity and a pear skin finish of good length. Like this. A good rendition of Gris, and a good thing to drink.”
