Pinot Gris (Central Otago)
2017 vintage IS HERE!
This Pinot Gris combines fruit from premium sites in Central Otago, including our mature family owned vineyard in Wanaka, Mt Maude. Typical aromas of ripe pear, quince and brioche lead onto a rich textured palate where whole bunch pressing and partial barrel fermentation has created complexity.
Hand harvested from four vineyards in Central Otago. One being our family vineyard, Mt Maude in Wanaka, the balance from vineyards we work closely with on Maori Point Rd, Lowburn and Gibbston Valley. 60 % of the juice is fermented in stainless steel contributing to the delicate and pure aromatics in the wine. The remaining 40% is fermented in older oak barriques giving viscosity and texture. Combining the parcels creates a Pinot Gris both aromatic and textural.
