The fruit for the Y Series Pinot Grigio is sourced from premium viticultural regions of South Australia. Selective hand-picking allowed the grapes to be picked at optimal ripeness.

Fermentation proceeded on full solids, utilising yeast indigenous to the vineyard. The wines were then left on their lees until blending, giving the final wine complexity and finesse.
