Grapes are hand picked and held in a cold room for eighteen hours, before being whole bunch pressed to ensure minimal colour pick up from the slightly pink skins. Juices are clarified before a cool fermentation which captures the fresh flavours of this stylish and exotic grape. Unwooded and unoaked, bottled promptly after vinification to retain and express the defining elements of pure, varietal Pinot Gris.

Crisp, with nuts and citrus, a medium bodied wine, very soft and juicy, with a nutty, complex textured middle palate finishing on a note of sweetness and minerality. Just great by itself, goes perfectly with tempura and any other seafood or white meat.
