The Eden Springs Vineyard of Gatt Wines in High Eden - Eden Valley is well situated for Pinot Gris because of its cool moderate temperatures at its elevated altitude, which allow fruits to ripe slower and to produce wine with heightened acidity and natural fruit flavors
The 2015 harvest followed a cool and dry growing season and rainfall just in time at veraison. This ideal conditions preserved in the wine bright color fruits and natural acidity of the wines. The outstanding quality of the 2015 vintage allowed Gatt Wines to premier its premium Gatt High Eden Pinot Gris, truly crisp and with pleasant flavors of a fresh pear and grapefruit as well as with subtle flinty notes.
The wine makes an incredible aperitif and is harmonious with many food types like cold starters, pan-fried salmon, steamed fish or vegetables, roast chicken, roast pork, salads and cheese dishes.
