|Colour||Pale straw yellow|
|Aroma||An aromatic nose of pear, green apple and garden herb which is matched with subtle notes of spice and roasted cashew nut.|
|Palate||A deliciously long creamy palate with green apple and ripe pear flavours combines with refreshing natural acidity. The palate has depth, and is soft and round due to the fruit concentration and partial barrel fermentation.|
|Growing Conditions||After a cool and damp spring/summer, the weather pattern became dry and stable in Tumbarumba for February and March. The Pinot Gris escaped any disease and remained clean throughout ripening and was picked at optimum ripeness. The lack of any extreme temperatures or any other extreme weather events led to good yields of ripe fruit allowing a long slow ripening with intense fruit flavours and retaining the typically high natural acidity of the region.|
|Vinification/Maturation||Individual parcels of Pinot Gris were handpicked based on flavour ripeness and style. These parcels were delivered to the Hanwood Estate winery where they were gently crushed and pressed to ensure minimal colour and phenolic extraction. After gentle fining and settling, the juices were then carefully racked and inoculated with two different yeast strains, one to enhance aromatics and the other to provide palate texture and weight. Fermented cool between 13-15 degrees in tank for aromatic fruit flavours and a portion in barrel for texture and length. The wines were then left on natural yeast lees for a further 4 months to build texture and complexity, where the wine was then blended, gently fined and bottled.|
