Lawsons Dry Hills Pinot Gris CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Gris Grigio Marlborough New Zealand
Sourced from low yielding sites which are managed to yield an exceptional quality of Pinot Gris. Slow ripening mesoclimes and a wonderful level of flavour development, extensive leaf plucking and crop thinning, produce a wine with great complexity and a lovely texture that can only be realized from harvests of the most concentrated fruit, subtle oak treatments, a judicious amount of malolactic influence and extravagant lees stirring regimens.

Fruit is sourced from the Lawson's Dry Hills property at Waihopai Valley, the balance is picked off adjacent Barnsley vineyard and Dave Eatwell's densely planted hillside vineyard in Omaka Valley. Each site is separately harvested and handled. Grapes are picked through several passes and gently pressed, free runs are filled to fermenters, secondary light pressings are sent to older French oak barriques and puncheons for vinification. Parcels are inoculated with Alsace yeasts and stirred weekly to encourage rich autolysis. After several months resting on sedimentery lees, the best batches are assembled with the pick of barrel ferments into the finished wine.
Light straw yellow hue. Intense pear drop and honeysuckle, red apple and subtle creamy vanilla aromas. Medium bodied with gentle acidity, the palate is rich and round with impressive length and just a sliver of sweetness. Pear and red apple, citrus and poached pear combine with the mealy textures and flavours derived from lees stirring and barrel ferments to produce an elegant, complex wine.
