“crisp, racy, smooth-textured Pinot Gris with exotic nuances.”

VINTAGE SUMMARY:

2012 will be noted as one of the most nail-biting to begin and then spectacular to conclude harvests on record. Variable weather conditions plagued the beginning of harvest with some frost damage to the Mt Maude Vineyard as a result of late spring snows. However a good even flower- ing and a relatively cool but exceptionally long ‘Indian Summer’ allowed the critical ‘hang time’ and slow ripening of fruit on the vine to intensify flavours whilst acid levels remained intact producing wines with wonderful flavours at lower alcohols - 2012 is definitely a vintage to watch.
 

VINIFICATION:

Hand harvested from two vineyards in Central Otago. One being our family vineyard, Mt Maude in Wanaka, the balance from a vineyard we work closely with in the Cromwell Basin. The fruit from the Mt Maude vineyard was whole bunch pressed to extract only free run juice which was then fermented clean in stainless steel. This portion contributes the delicate and pure aromatics in the wine.
 

The Pisa Range fruit we consider slightly riper and more robust, is foot- stomped for a small % of maceration then pressed and 40 % fermented in older oak barriques contributing viscosity and texture to the wine. We enjoy combining the two portions to create a lovely balance.
