Growers taste success
Viticulturist Michael Wilson says that he never gets sick of eating his own winegrapes. The skins are thick and the grapes are full of pips, but Mr Wilson said you can’t beat the tropical fruit flavour of Sauvignon Blanc, the citrus tang of Riesling and the fresh fruit flavours of Pinot Noir. The flavours and their intensity also help Mr Wilson to zero-in on the perfect date to pick. He said it was those flavours that he wanted in a bottle, not the jammy excess sugar flavour from over-ripe Pinot Noir, nor the herbaceous green pip taint of under-ripe grapes, reports The Mercury.
