BACKGROUND

From a locally grown vineyard, this small batch production of Pinot Gris has been made in the ‘French’ style to complement our local cuisine.

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 (battonage), the barrels were blended back with the 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.

 

TASTING NOTES

Aromas of pear and rockmelon abound in this contemporary blend and are backed by a full and flavoursome palate of similar fruits. Pinot Gris by nature has a very rich texture and mouthfeel and the subtle oak handling has enriched this to give added palate weight and length. A food wine to its pithy, pear-enhanced core!
