From the Winery
Bannockburn in Central Otago is renowned for its ability to produce small quantities of premium wines. Domain Road's Defiance Vineyard, on Felton Road, is tucked into a sheltered valley where miners once hunted for gold. The fruit was de-stemmed and crashed to press. The resulting juice was cold settled for two days before racking and inoculating with selected wine yeasts to undergo fermentation in stainless steel tank and older oak barrels (16%). The tank fermentation was stopped to retain some residual sugar. The two portions were then combined.
Our Pinot Gris has aromas of fragrant spiced pear and ripe peach on the nose, mingle with hints of melon and vanilla. On the palate it provides sweet pear, peach, nectarine and melon. The wine is dry with a creamy texture, it has balanced acidity with good levels of complexity and concentration followed by a long lingering finish.
Enjoy with Asian cuisine, seafood, white meats or salad dishes.
