Winemaking:


For all the hard work put into growing the Pinot Gris grapes to not be a waste, the hard call on some blocks had to be made on whether to pick earlier than hoped, or not at all.
Fruit for this block was still clean and had good flavour ripeness without the typical high sugar levels for this variety.
So, in the winery the decision was made to ferment this wine at a low 12?C to retain as much as of the fragile flavour as possible. We stopped the ferment early to leave some natural sweetness that could carry the delicate flavours. It was left on clean fine lees for about 3 months to help with texture and mouthfeel.

Appearance:
Golden straw colour.

Style:
Medium

Impressions:
Instant on the nose are crisp apple and pear notes. On the palate honey notes followed in by feijoa and crisp granny smith apple flavourings, with a sweet fennel aftertaste.

Accompaniments:
The perfect compliment to any meal, this is a smooth welcome drop which could be enjoyed in all company.
