2018 Pinot Gris
The same pink colour as the ‘Regular” Pinot Gris but with more intense aromatics and a richer, rounder and softer palate as this goes through 100% malolactic fermentation. Unfined and Unfiltered this year so expect a slight haziness and a small deposit in the botom of the bottle. Drink Now – 2021.
Vineyard: Planted from 1990-2005 on a mix of granite, granite shard, loess and glacial till. 100% Naramata village.
Wine Making: Hand-picked on September 12th 2018. Gently crushed and left to settle on the skins for 36 hours in open top fermenters. Pressed of the skins with fermentation taking place in a combination of 2 tonne open top fermenters and 5+ year old French barriques. Gently filtered and bottled in February 2019.
