Fruit explosion in a glass! Orchard fruit, peach, pear, golden delicious apple leads to wet stone & citrus in the mouth. Finishes clean and crisp with good fruit and acid.
The Pinot Gris was handpicked and processed the same day. It was cool temperature fermented at 16 ⁰C for 10 days in stainless steel. Cold stabilized to 0 ⁰C after fermentation.
An arresting pinot gris, opulent but dry and vibrant. Lush stonefruit, racy acids and great purity are expressed on the palate. Impressively balanced, with a very stony character, stylish and elegant. Nervy with delicate notes of pear, rosehip, chalk and lime. Pleasurably textured with a light oiliness and delivering above the mean complexity. Excellent length. Enjoy now with soft cheeses or wait for the lovely honeyed character that bottle ageing will bring. Tasted April 2017. 92 Points
