This Pinot Grigio is carefully handpicked in March from a single site cool climate vineyard in Balhannah called Manyara. The grapes were gently pressed and the free run juice was then fermented in a combination of French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks. The juice was fermented cold to capture the subtle flavours of the vintage and was left on yeast lees for 4 months to develop mid palate complexity. This process resulted in a Pinot Grigio that displays balance and persistent length. The nose displays subtle white floral flavours and spiced pear. The palate also displays apple and hints of poached pear with spice on the back palate complemented by a lovely textural finish. This is a great stand alone drink and will go well with food.
