Sub-Region: 45% Gibbston, 55% Cromwell Basin
Colour: Pale lemon
Flavour Profile: 2021 Pinot Gris is singing of lime, tangy citrus with perfumed sweet honeysuckle, and a hint of apricot. Those aromatics fulfil their promise on the palate. Sumptuous fruit flavours, gentle acidity, slight mineral tones and a richly textured, elegant mouthfeel give the wine great length.
This dry style, very aromatic Pinot Gris displays impressive fruit sweetness and will fool your palate. It has only 1 gram of residual sugar per litre.
Our Pinot Gris will dance over your palate with the poise and tension of an accomplished ballet dancer and the long lingering, refreshing finish will make it memorable.
Winemaking Comments: The Pinot Gris was hand-harvested and selected from 7th to 19th of April. The wine was whole bunch pressed and fermented in both older oak barrels (20%) and stainless steel tanks.
Both Indigenous (80%) and inoculated (20%) yeast fermented the wine over six weeks, then the wine rested on its lees for four months to build up texture before being racked and filtered for clarification before bottling. The wine drinks beautifully now but will continue to age for 5-8 years. Not fined and Vegan Friendly
