PalateFresh bright flavours with spicy nashi pear and citrus. The palate is textural, with a lingering spiciness and clean refreshing finish.
Growing ConditionsAfter one of the wettest winters on record the growing season followed up with a cool spring & warm summer. This resulted in healthy vines with robust canopies and moderate yields and the harvest period about 2 weeks behind average. This slightly later harvest allowed the fruit to mature to full flavour ripeness in cooler conditions. This has resulted in fantastic wines with ripe flavours, balanced acid and lower alcohols.
Vinification/MaturationIndividual blocks of Pinot Grigio were picked based on flavour ripeness and style. These parcels were gently pressed to ensure minimal colour and phenolic extraction. After gentle fining and settling, the juices were then carefully racked and inoculated with selected yeast strains. Predominately fermented cool between 13-15 degrees in tank for aromatic fruit flavours. A portion was barrel fermented in older French oak for texture and length. The wines were then left on natural yeast lees to build texture and complexity. Following maturation the wine was then carefully blended, gently fined and bottled.
