Description

Winemakers Notes

Quite simply, the best fruit we have ever picked off the vineyard at the winery! One of the three blocks is now approaching 20 years old, and the age of these vines, along with the great weather during the growing period, has given us fruit with the ripeness, depth of flavor, and chemical structure to reward immediate drinking or medium-term cellaring. Tank fermentation and a period of lees contact have produced a wine that has Pinot Gris’ wonderful transparency, accompanied by glorious weight and texture.

Independent Reviewer's Comment
“Already drinking well, this pale orange wine is mouthfilling, with very good depth of stonefruit and spice flavours, a hint of ginger and a moderately firm, dry finish.” Michael Cooper, May 2021
