Fruit is selected from a number of viticultural precincts, which provide a diversity of vineyard resources to construct a wine which defines the uniqueness of Pinot Gris. The aim is to include parcels which have achieved full flavour development whilst still retaining vibrant aromatics. Grapes are hand picked and held in a cold room for eighteen hours, before being whole bunch pressed to ensure minimal colour pick up from the slightly pink skins. Juices are clarified before a cool fermentation which captures the fresh flavours of this stylish and exotic grape. Unwooded and unoaked, bottled promptly after vinification to retain and express the defining elements of pure, varietal Pinot Gris.
