|Wine Sub Category||Pinot Gris|
A bright and fresh wine exhibiting talc, lemon verbena, lemon sherbet, lychee together with some mineral and nettle complexity. The palate is expressive with luscious lychee and floral fruit qualities, beautiful texture and bright natural acidity to carry the finish.
This wine has been made with a view to preserving freshness and varietal definition, whilst combining some added complexity through different vinification methods. All grapes were whole bunch pressed, with 90% of the blend being cold settled in stainless steel to achieve a brightly clarified juice before racking and inoculation with QA23 yeast. 10% of the blend was transferred to old French oak barriques, complete with solids, where wild yeast was utilised to conduct the ferment. Fermentation temperatures were controlled between 14 and 16 degrees Celsius until dry.
