Bangor's 2016 Jimmy's Hill Pinot Gris was released late August 2016. 2015/16 was a warm season, which packed the fruit full of flavours: apple, pear, nectrarine, peach, grapefruit, and hints of tropical fruit. We are really impressed with the flavour of this wine, and we think this is our best vintage of Gris so far! Pinot Gris is a versatile wine. It can be enjoyed on it own, or with a wide range of foods including seafood, salad and cheese.
Our Pinot Gris is named Jimmy's Hill after the highest point on Bangor. Rising a commanding 1002 ft, Jimmy's Hill was the site of one of Tasmania's convict era semaphore stations. With a simple hut for shelter, Jimmy, the rugged bushman who called the remote outpost home, maintained a vigilant eye on adjacent stations, standing by to relay messages.
