Elegant, fresh and luscious with layers of yellow apple, baked pear and spice. This is a dry style Pinot Gris with a silky texture and persistent length.
Drinking well now and will continue to reward over the next five years.
The fruit was carefully monitored during ripening and harvested in the cool of the evening at maximum flavour maturity and physiological ripeness. The grapes were pressed off immediately upon arriving in the winery to minimise phenolics and the settled juice was fermented with selected yeast in stainless steel. Lees stirring was carried out post fermentation to add texture and mouth feel. This Pinot Gris is a dry style with very little residual sugar but has a rich and luscious character from the fruit flavours and silky texture
