Six Pack – Pinot Gris, Rosé & Chardonnay

$225.00

Chardonnay 2019 × 2

Winemaking: Hand-picked fruit was gently whole-bunch pressed into a tank and settled overnight. It was then transferred into French oak Barriques and Puncheons (20% New, 80% second, third and fourth use) and inoculated with a neutral yeast. From May until late winter the barrels were stirred occasionally until MLF was completed in 75% of the blend. The wine was left on yeast lees until bottling in January 2020.

Nose: Aromas of fresh lime, lemon and nectarine with a delicate nutty bouquet.  Hints of apricot and floral notes combined with a subtle oak finish.

Palate: Subtle flavours reflective of the aromas and showing a delicate steeliness at the mid palate. The flavours of citrus and oak spice build towards a finish which shows the cool nature of the vintage with fresh yet balanced acidity. This wine will be best enjoyed over the next two to five years.

Pinot Gris 2019 × 2

   

Winemaking: Hand-picked fruit was harvested on two occasions aiming for more complex flavours. The fruit was gently whole-bunch pressed into a tank and settled for 48 hours. The juice spending time on Pinot Gris & Chardonnay skins. The clear juice was then transferred to another tank and yeast (selected for its enhancement of the Pinot Gris fruit aromas and flavours) was added for fermentation. The wine was bottled in August 2019.

Nose: A floral bouquet of white flowers, green apples, pear and jasmine with almond and spice showing though. The aroma is powerful and hints at an incredibly textural wine.

Palate: Flavours as suggested by the aromas but with unrestrained elegance. The flavours of green apples, pear and jasmine are fleshy and pulpy with a delightful creamy quality that mingles with a soft yet persistent acidity. The wine builds to a taut finish and hints of musk, spice and red apple lingering on the palate. This wine will be best enjoyed over the next two years.
