SKU: 20TKPG Category:

Concentrated and expressive, with vibrant aromas of fresh ginger, Nashi pear and tropical fruits. Flavours of fresh pear, stonefruit and spice explode onto the palate and sumptuous, ripe tropical fruits give depth and weight.

A complex, balanced expression of Pinot Gris, with a hint of fruit sweetness complementing the defined, mineral acidity.

Description

Vintage

The 2020 season started cool and dry, with warmer Summer temperatures leading into a long, warm Autumn. The season delivered lower yields of small berries, with excellent ripeness and flavour concentration.

Vineyards

Our Bannockburn Pinot Gris comes from Jerome vineyard, and is defined by the devigourating influence of it’s sandy soils. Small, intensely flavoured bunches ripen evenly on the North facing slopes, developing exotic fruit flavours. Northburn shows fine boned acidity, pure fresh fruit flavours and a crystalline minerality derived from Schist based soils.

Varietal

100% Pinot Gris, Clones 40A, Selection Ovaille, M2 and 457.

Winemaking

Hand harvested and fermented at very low temperatures to preserve fruit expression. An extended period of aging on full fermentation solids builds mid palate body and complexity prior to bottling in Spring.
