Tasting Notes

This is a full bodied style of Pinot Gris with a hint of residual sugar to balance the natural acidity. Barrel fermentation in seasoned barriques provides the wine with richness and the early picked sites provide fresh, natural acidity. Aromatics and flavours of stone fruit, honey and pears are evident with a hint of spice providing complexity.

Technical Notes

All fruit is hand picked and gently whole cluster pressed in a pneumatic press. An early pick from the Barber Vineyard provides natural acidity and freshness to the finished wine while later picks from the Keltern and Noetzli vineyards provide richness and aromatics. The individual vineyard parcels are fermented separately in a mix of tanks and seasoned oak barriques. The parcels are then left on lees before blending and bottling.
