2016 Longboard Pinot Gris

2016 Longboard Pinot Gris

Tasting Note

Aromas of citrus blossom abound in this intriguing wine. The palate is full and flavoursome with crisp citrus and nashi pear developing to a long finish of delicate apricot flavours. Pinot Gris by nature has a rich texture and mouthfeel and the subtle oak handling has enriched this to give added palate weight and length. A fantastic and balanced wine that will pair very well with food or can be easily enjoyed on its own.                     

 

Production Notes

From a locally grown vineyard, this small batch production of Pinot Gris has been picked slightly riper to give richer flavours and a fuller mouthfeel.

50% of the wine was transferred to 1 and 2 year old barrels shortly after fermentation and stirred fortnightly for 4 months. Upon softening of the wine due to the breakdown of the yeast lees, the barrels were blended back with the other 50% of wine in tank and again stirred with their lees for a further 2 months. This has helped integration of the barrels and softening of the tank component.
