Jealous Sisters Pinot Gris

2016

In a Nutshell

A lovely balance between fleshy fruit, aromatics and delicate spice.

Tasting Notes

A lovely bouquet of yellow peach and nectarine opens up to a musky floral and cinnamon spice nose. Like a freshly plucked pebble from a cold mountain stream. The palate is rich and rounded with a soft mealy character from the extended lees contact. The juicy nectarine characters give the palate a real fleshiness that finishes on a subtle spicy note. Drink now, or cellar for up to two years.

Production Notes

The grapes arrived at the winery in perfect condition and were quickly processed to ensure no loss of quality took place. A soft pressing action was used to ensure no harsh tannins were extracted from the skins. The juice was chilled to 8C for three days for cold settling to take place and remove any unwanted solids. The clean juice was then fermented in two separate stainless steel tanks at different temperatures to give a greater complexity of flavours. The wine remained on the lees for two months after fermentation to help build the palate weight and rich texture of the wine before final clarification and bottling.
