Parcels of Pinot Gris grown to a splendid site, high up the Eden Valley, atop bony, rocky soils, are picked a little later in the season to make a more textural style of wine. Following harvest, grapes are crushed and the juices drained immediately away to ensure a finished wine of delicacy and softness. A small portion is inoculated in French oak hogsheads to create a Pinot Gris of characteristic barrel ferment richness, the balance is treated to vinification in chilled fermenters to retain the urgency of Eden Valley fruit. After a few weeks on sedimentery yeast lees, components are assembled, stabilized and bottled early to preserve freshness. Alcohol 13.0%
Delicate colour with a green tinge. Bouquet of freshly cut pear, blossoms and pine nut, nashi and quince. The palate is rich and soft, offering lemon zest stonefruit flavours, hazelnut and vegetable, textural with a mineral crunch, before a pleasingly dry finish. Drinking beautifully now, serve lightly chilled alongside pan fried salmon or prawns, roast pork or chicken mushroom pie.
