Description

Viticulture

The 2020 growing season was an exciting year that brought many challenges but was ultimately very rewarding. The season started with a cooler spring along with a cool summer. The decrease in temperature allowed the vines to ripen slowly and prolonged the harvest period. This permitted the grapes to retain acidity and has led to increased flavour and aromatics.

The Pinot Gris is sourced from the Glengarry vineyard situated in the Tamar Valley, Tasmania.

WINEMAKING

Harvested in April of 2020, the grapes were hand harvested and gently processed in the winery they were destemmed into fermenters and left on skins for 4 days. Once the desired colour and texture were achieved. The grapes were gently basket pressed and split into two parcels, one to ferment in French oak while the other to ferment in stainless steel tank. The wine was matured for 6 months and then blended together to tank for bottling. Minimal fining and filtration were utilised.

No animal products were used in the production of this wine.

Tasting NOTES

The bouquet opens with a floral blossom followed by notes of ginger and grapefruit pith. On the palate the wine gives hints of baked apple and cinnamon, while also showing a very crisp and fresh liveliness, the finish is smooth and balanced.
