A small portion was fermented naturally in Frnech oak
It has appealing aromas of red apple, pear and subtle underlying ginger spice
Crafted in a dry style, it shows refinement and restraint yet delivers an expressive palate with layers of pear, nectarine and baked apple tart. A creamy, textural mid palate adds to the complexity of the wine and gives the wine great length. Drinking beautifully now and will continue to evolve over the next few years.
All harvesting was conducted in the cool of the early morning to retain freshness and purity. Each block was picked and fermented separately to allow for a range of yeast strains to be used, giving greater options at blending. A small portion was fermented naturally in French oak barrels to help build texture and palate weight into the final wine. The wine was left on fine lees for a number of months after fermentation to develop richness and depth of flavour. The 201819 growing season started with intermittent rain throughout spring. This continued through flowering and impacted on the fruitfulness of the vines, meaning the Pinot Gris blocks yielded lower than typical crop levels. Summer temperatures were particularly hot for the region and minimal amounts of rain were recorded throughout December and January. Lower yields and the warm conditions resulted in harvest starting earlier than normal. The fruit was picked in pristine condition with great flavour and balanced acidity.
