Bursting with flavour of pears and honey. This bright wine shows great structure and richness typical of a Pinot Gris. Perfect with seafood, chicken or enjoyed chilled by itself on a warm summer night!
From The Winery
Aroma: Pear-drop, melons and honey. Ripe citrus shows through, while notes of oats and nuts sit in the background. The warm vintage has also produced a subtle cinnamon spice character. Palate: The bright pear-drop and ripe citrus characters are the main flavours, very typical of the variety and vineyard sites. The structure shows mouth-filling grip and richness typical of this full bodied Pinot Gris style. This concentrated wine will reward patience and optimum drinking will be from 3-7 years from vintage date.
Winemaking Predominantly hand-picked, gentle juice extraction. Fermented with high solids juice by wild and cultured yeasts in wood and stainless steel tanks. Long ferments and extended time on lees before blending pre-Christmas.
Vineyard Vertical shoot positioning, shoot and bunch thinning to restrict yield. Open canopies with high bunch exposure to sunlight
Food Pairing Pairs perfectly with seafood, pasta, poultry and creamy garlic sauces
