GREYSTONE SAND DOLLAR PINOT GRIS

$21.99

Elegant, finely balanced nose of nashi, rock melon, cloves and cinnamon.   The palate shows plenty of green pear, apple harmoniously intertwined with lees influence of brioche and fresh pastry.   This wine carries a strength and presence throughout lending it as a great match for food;  in particular seafood and light meats.

Description

VITICULTURIST’S NOTES

The Sand Dollar Pinot Gris was picked in early April. The fruit was clean with moderately ripe skins and seeds. The earlier picking date for this dry style assists winemaking by retaining fresh, natural acidity and lovely bright flavours

2 500 vines per/Ha on VSP two-cane trellis.

WINEMAKERS’S NOTES

Picked at relatively low brix for elegance and site expression this is a dry style Pinot Gris. Pre-settling maceration of 10 hours before settling for two days. This wine was fermented in tank at low temperatures through to dryness and kept cool for several weeks before sulphuring. Extensive lees stirring post ferment for texture and along with 5% wild barrel fermentation has added different layers of complexity. Estate grown, estate bottled.
