  • THE BRIEF
  • Owned by Vanessa and Neville Bagot, Barringwood's first vines were planted in 1993, on a working sawmill site in Tasmania. The company now owns three vineyards - in Lower Barrington, Evandale and Cranbrook, covering 33 hectares of land. Barringwood Pinot Gris, Mill Block Pinot Noir and the famous Schonburger have been listed amongst the highest rated wines in their respective categories.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • The Pinot Gris was harvested at full ripeness to gain rich flavours and texture. The bunches were gently destemmed without crushing and soaked on skins for 4 hours prior to air bag pressing. Fermentation temperature was held between 15 and 20ËšC to retain natural fruit aromatics.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    A rich but lively palate of crunchy pear and lemon complimented by floral and peach notes. A long clean backbone of bright cool climate acidity and minerality gives elegance and length.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • In 2012 Vanessa and Neville Bagot were visiting Vanessa’s beloved home state of Tasmania, when they were made aware that Barringwood Park Vineyard (as it was then called) was for sale. A single visit to the stunning site along with wine tasting captivated them. Perhaps it is too simplistic to say they liked the wine so much they bought the vineyard, but it’s not too far from the mark. The first vines at Barringwood’s original Lower Barrington vineyard were planted on the site of a working sawmill in 1993. Vanessa and Neville have planted two new vineyards in Evandale and Cranbrook, in addition to the original Lower Barrington plantings. Barringwood Vineyard has one of the longest growing seasons in Tasmania giving their wines delicacy and elegance along with a classic backbone of cool climate acidity. Since the first vintage in 1998, Barringwood’s multi award winning single vineyard wines have consistently been among Tasmania’s best.

    Very good gris here. Pear, apple, honeysuckle, jasmine. Viscous as gris should be, with a faint pumice-like pucker and free-flow of transparent acidity from fore to aft, given further lift by some unresolved spritz. This is richly endowed of texture and yet, fresh and effortless in its showcase of ripe fruit flavours.'
