Our 2018 Pinot Gris is pleasingly refreshing. It is a truly classic Central Otago wine. The wine displays lifted notes of lime and citrus zest and sweet spice aromatics with notable hints of passionfruit and honeydew on the nose.
The dry style Pinot Gris still displays an impressive fruit sweetness; it will fool your palate. It has only 2 grams of residual sugar per litre. Fresh pineapple acidity and unctuous texture make it a balanced wine with a mineral backbone. Our Pinot Gris shows drive and persistence; you're ensured to enjoy the long lingering, refreshing finish.
The Pinot Gris was hand harvested and selected on the 7th and 8th April.
The wine was whole bunch pressed and fermented in both older white oak barrels (15%) and stainless steel tanks. Indigenous yeast fermented the wine over three months to dryness. The wine then rested on its lees for six months to build up texture before being racked and filtered for clarification before bottling. The wine will drink well now but continue to age for 5-8 years.
