2023 SOS King Valley Pinot Grigio

Alc/vol 12.0 % 


Hints of kiwifruit and an undertone of white peach embraced by bright acidity giving it a fresh finish.

Eat: Refreshing and dry, this wine matches perfectly with most dishes from crisp, fresco salads to fresh fish tacos with all the jalapeños.
Share with: crack it open for your neighbours. Invite the gals over. Share it with your Mum. Drink it with you.

The King River flows down from the heights of Victoria’s Alpine region and has done so for millennia, slowly building a fertile plain of mineral rich alluvial soils.  These soils are the broken-down bones of Victoria’s famous high-country.  Cool air follows the river down from the mountains, settling in the valley and slowing the ripening of the fruit on the vines that sit alongside the majestic river.  This cool climate produces subtle but complex wines that are beautifully balanced and finely structured.

After pressing into stainless steel tanks, the juice was allowed to ferment slowly to preserve fruit character and freshness. The wine was chilled immediately when dry to prevent Malo-lactic fermentation and capture the lovely subtle characters of kiwifruit and white peach.  A moderate amount of acidity provides a bracing backdrop and refreshing finish.

“Another very tasty release from Jason Searle and Bill Downie, aka Save Our Souls. Fermented in stainless and with zero mlf, this salivating summer white has citrus and stone fruit notes along with a soupçon of lemongrass. Gently textured and refreshing, my guess is, that on a warm day, the bottle will be gone before you know it.” 92 Points Philip Rich, Halliday Wine Companion Nov 2023.
