Redbank keep the folklore of brave local pioneers alive, by accessing fruit from vineyards in the high country which gave birth to the nineteenth century tradition of droving the Long Paddock. Through the hard work of growers and diligence of the Redbank viticultural team, the very healthiest vines have been established and trained to yield parcels of the finest Pinot Gris. A vigorous wine with revitalizingly fresh fruit characters and the exquisite tang of tropical acids, to accompany freshly grilled fishes, dainty nibbles or the finest tasty cheese.
Fruit is selected from a number of viticultural precincts, which provide a diversity of vineyard resources to construct a wine which defines the uniqueness of Pinot Gris. The aim is to include parcels which have achieved full flavour development whilst still retaining vibrant aromatics. Grapes are hand picked and held in a cold room for eighteen hours, before being whole bunch pressed to ensure minimal colour pick up from the slightly pink skins. Juices are clarified before a cool fermentation which captures the fresh flavours of this stylish and exotic grape. Unwooded and unoaked, bottled promptly after vinification to retain and express the defining elements of pure, varietal Pinot Gris.
TASTING NOTES
A bright clean, pale straw colour. Complex aromas of stonefruits and grapefruit, citrus and spiced pears, herbs and nashi pears and lifted fresh florals of white flowers. Crisp, with nuts and citrus, a medium bodied wine, very soft and juicy, with a nutty, complex textured middle palate finishing on a note of sweetness and minerality. Just great by itself, goes perfectly with tempura and any other seafood or white meat.

About the Redbank Long Paddock Winery
The Long Paddock wines honour the ingenuity and courage of the early Australian drovers
Inflicted with cruel and regular droughts, these men and women faced the option of giving up and starving along with their cattle and sheep or flinging open their boundary gates and allowing their stumbling, starving stock to roam the bush roads and tracks in the desperate hope of finding food and water. Somewhere. Anywhere. This was known as “droving the Long Paddock”, a task that could take them away from their family and home for months and months. Sometimes even years. Fortunately some stock was saved. Unfortunately for some, when the rains didn’t come the heartbreak of seeing their stock die became a regular occurrence. This was the beginning of the Long Paddock tradition. Redbank Long Paddock»
