2020 Pinot Gris
Fastly becoming cult like, this wine sells out quickly every vintage. A stunning rose gold colour in the glass. The fruit is hand picked, sorted, crushed and left on skins for 72 hours prior to pressing. Naturally fermented in 2-5 year old 500 litre puncheons spending seven months on lees. This wine has a light pink colour with an amber hue due to the extended skin contact. On the nose it displays rosewater and hints of ripe nashi pear flavours followed by a rich and textural palate that has a good balance, and with ripe fruit on the back palate.
