An experienced vigneron counting over 20 years in the Australian wine industry, Phil Sexton relocated from the warm, coastal region of Margaret River to the gravelly slopes of Victoria’s Yarra Valley in the late 1990s to pursue cool climate viticulture.

Grassy, earthy pinot grigio. The finish is perfectly balanced, nice and crisp. I really like this wine.

Very light in color, minerally nose with apricot notes, light in body, but good fruit on the palate and refreshing.
