Tasting Notes

This wine is pale apricot to rose petal in colour, with golden facial stripes. No fining additives were added to preserve its enticing colour and aromas. Well balanced with a bit of natural residual sugar to round up an innate zesty acidity, typical of cool climate Pinot Grigio. This Pinot Gris is loaded with intense scents such as white peaches, honey suckle, nashi pears, apricot, cream and bright musk.

Food Matching

This Pinot Grigio would be best served with roasted turkey, tempura, Laksa coconut cream dishes, spicy Cantonese food or Madras curries. Also it can be paired with blue cheese or strong matured cheddar.

Cellaring

Ready to drink now, or will develop over the next few years. Serve lightly chilled.

Winemaking

Sourced from 12 years old vines planted on limestone and sandy gravel, located on the northern slopes of the Pyrenees ranges at 300 metres. The grapes were machine harvested in mid-March, crushed, de-stemmed and pressed into stainless tanks. 10% of the juice was transferred into French oak barrels (three years old). Fermentation took place over 15 days (in stainless) with selected yeast and four weeks in barrels (wild yeast). Both fractions were kept on lees contact for a further month. Finally, after five months the wine was racked and stabilised (protein and tartrate) and prepared for bottling.
