Pinot Gris 2019
This Pinot Gris has delicious poached pear, lime cordial and elderflower on the nose with a suggestion of salinity. A seductive and elegant wine with crunchy pear, citrus and apple flavours and a long mineral finish. Made with food pairing in mind, this Pinot Gris is deceptively complex and a good candidate for cellaring for up to 10 years

The Pinot Gris grapes that created this beautiful wine came from established vineyards in the Gibbston Valley (17-year-old vines) with 25% sourced from Lowburn. The 2018 - 2019 growing season returned to more classic conditions with warm (but not hot) days and cool nights. Yields were normal with minimal disease pressure and we had the benefit of the classic long hang time. The cool nights helped retain the perfect level of acidity for Pinot Gris. Each block was harvested at optimal ripeness in April in order to achieve a wine with aromatic freshness, rich texture and restrained alcohol. A combination of stainless steel tanks (75%) and old French oak barrels (25%) were used for fermentation and settling before being bottled on October 2nd.
