Single vineyard 100% Pinot Gris blush wine in the Italian style. 100% pinot gris grown entirely at Jurassic Ridge home vineyard.
Crystal clear and bright straw gold (blushed on the skins) with a bouquet of elder flower, pear, dried apricot and almond aromas. Easy drinking, dry and refreshing grigio style with apple, citrus, nashi pear and hints of nuts, honey and spice.
2010 was the dryest summer in Auckland for over 100 years and the pinot gris that was harvested had great concentration and ripeness.
The vines were in their 8th year and were reduced to a low crop of just 0.5 tonnes off 400 vines. The scions are grafted onto low-vigour phylloxera-resistant rootstock (3309), and hand-planted with close spacing and low fruiting wires in our North-facing, North-sloping block approximately 80m above sea level into drained clay soils over deep clay and underlying 155 million year old Jurassic rock.
The fruit was selectively hand-picked at 21.2 Brix in the cool of the early morning , chilled overnight to 10 degrees C, destemmed and lightly crushed. The juice was left on the skins for several hours before racking off, light pressing and cold settling. After cold settling overnight the juice was racked off again and and cold fermented at 12-15 degrees in stainless steel. After the ferment it was lees-aged for 9 months before racking off and bottling.
