Pinot Grigio/Pinot Gris
Winemaking: Hand harvested in the early morning to retain natural acidity. Primarily whole bunched pressed, aiming to limit skin contact and preserve elegance. Fermented in stainless steel with temperature control before maturation on lees to build texture and complexity.
2017 Vintage: the 2017 vintage will be recorded as one of the smallest in almost 60 years, down almost 15% to the year prior. A spring frost and a hail event reduced bunch size resulting in less berries. The better sites at higher altitudes with excellent canopy management ensured they avoided the heat of the summer and delivered premium fruit with very fine, pure flavours indeed.
Tasting Note: A lovely fresh nose of subtle stone fruit, spice, riverstone and subtle musk. Very pure and beautifully layered with fruit-driven flavours of nashi pear and freshly cut apple building to an expansive and textured mid-palate contrasted by slatey complexity and a briney twang. An impressively intense and complex wine with a beautiful mineral backbone. Best over the next three years.
