Mild winter conditions resulted in early budburst and strong early season growth. A warm spring with a distinct lack of wind allowed for strong canopy growth and Pisa avoided the frosts that hit other areas. Flowering began in early December along with winds thats disrupted some of the whites flowering. January began with a heavy rain event and the ensuing humid conditions resulted in some powdery mildew appearing. Fine weather through the remainder of the growing season allowed for beautiful ripening and whilst the crop was lower than usual, the quality of the fruit was excellent. Judicious hand harvesting and sorting, resulted in very high quality fruit entering the winery.
Planted on a combination of Lochar stony gravels located on the top terrace above the winery and shallow sandy loam soils on the flats below.
A wide picking window allowed us to pick some fruit early which presented a juicy and crunchy pear/red apple profile showing minerality coupled with bright acidity. A later pick saw concentrated poached pear with a touch of ginger and spice from a portion of barrel fermentation to add depth of flavour. A beautifully pure yet complex pinot gris.
