SKU: N/A Category:

Colour

Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight pale-gold tints, lighter on the edge.

Aroma

The nose is softly full with layers of aromatics, showing white and yellow stonefruits along with subtle stonefruit kernel notes, along with an amalgam of florals and honeysuckle, and nutty, minerally lees detail.  The aromatics grow in depth with aeration

Ageing Potential

Match with Middle Eastern and Asian cuisine over the next 3+ years

Palate

Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a rounded but deep core with good concentration of white and yellow stonefruits entwined with floral and honeysuckle notes, and nutty, minerally lees elements.  The flavours and aromatics blossom as the wine flows along a fine-textured phenolic line with balanced acidity lending a gentle freshness.  The wine carries to a lingering finish with exotic floral suggestions.  This is a gently concentrated, dryish Pinot Gris with stonefruit, floral and honeysuckle notes and some lees detail on a blossoming palate

Winemaking

Fruit from the ‘Om Santi’ and ‘East Base’ vineyards, fermented in stainless-steel to 13.1% alc. and 6.0 g/L RS, the wine aged 2 months on lees
