 Overview

“This wine shows an elegance not often associated with Pinot Gris. It is equally at home paired with a meal or on its own as an aperitif.”

Ben Minaker– Winemaker

Tasting Note:

This Pinot Gris is pale straw in colour. It has aromas of Pear, toasted almonds and baked apples. In the mouth it shows a creaminess but it’s not heavy at all. It retains a fresh backbone that keeps it upright and fresh. It finishes with a smooth finish that tastes of apples.Tasted September, 2018

Wine Making Note:

This wine was fermented in an older, large oak barrel. That is why is shows a bit of a creamy side. This wine was fermented to dryness meaning there is no more sugar in it. It spent 8 months in the barrel and then was removed to be bottled.

Food Pairing:

Try this wine with creamy cheese like Brie and camembert. To bring out the fruity side have some orange marmalade with the cheese.
