The 2007 vintage was an outstanding one for us. As usual, our Pinot Gris grapes were closely managed in the vineyard to ensure we achieved maximum flavour and ripeness. Excess fruit was dropped from the vines and the grapes were picked at 24.5 Brix. After harvest, the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks for four months and given regular lees stirring.
Made from 100% Pinot Gris, this wine is an excellent example of well ripened grapes that have been fermented out to dryness. A creamy mouthfeel and luscious flavours of pear, quince and melon are balanced with a clean acidity and a long, lingering finish.
