5 STARS - Wine Orbit, June 2022
COLOUR: A delicate, pale gold with hints of pink from the variety’s skin colour.
NOSE AND PALATE: A delightfully ripe and fragrant wine showing stonefruit, pear and floral aromas. Finishing long and comforting, this wine combines complex fruit flavours with a balance of acidity.
VINEYARD REGION: 100% Waipara Valley, North Canterbury
WINEMAKING: The fruit was harvested at maximum flavour as determined by frequent tasting in the vineyard. It was then very gently pressed to avoid harsh phenolic extraction and the juice allowed to cold settle. The clear juice was fermented at low temperatures using yeast renowned for their ability to enhance Pinot Gris aromas and to add complexity by the addition of fermentation esters. A small amount of residual sugar was left in the wine to complement the palate weight and structure.
WINEMAKER: Matt Connell
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Pinot Gris
MATURATION: 100% stainless steel fermentation
