Wine Making The fruit is handpicked and whole bunched pressed using a gentle champagne press cycle. No enzymes or sulphur are used at the press tray and the juice is oxidatively handled to get rid of oxidative enzymes early on in the winemaking process. The wine is left at ambient and transferred to barrel with full solids, with minimal sulphur added. Fermentation occurs using wild yeast and it is then left unsulfured to the following summer at which time most of the wine has completed full malo- lactic fermentation .  A  minimal amount of sulphur is added and left in barrel for a total of 6 months where it is racked off gross lees and transferred to tank.  The resulting wine is bottled using no finings and minimal filtration.
Tasting Notes A layered Pinot Gris with loads of fresh ripe fruit. This style of Pinot Gris will lure you in with its textural and beautifully rich palate, which lingers on to along and dry finish.

Sensational Pinot Gris. This is on the dance floor and everyone is watching. It's such a focused wine. There's a delightful fruit purity walking hand in hand with textural feels. White fleshed nectarine, poached pears and flint before superfine ginger spices caress the finish. Dig a little deeper to find lemon juice with a delicate creamy presence. The minerally drive is the clincher for me though - brilliant stuff and then some. Pour this large and kick back with friends who laugh lots. 95 Points - QWine
