2018 Pinot Gris Reserve
March 28th, 2019
Concentrated aromas of peach, pear, white blossom and vanilla bean lead to a richly textured and creamy palate. Flavours of stone fruit and melon complement the round mouthfeel and linger on the finish. 100% estate grown fruit. Barrel fermented in 6 select neutral barrels with lees stirring and aged on lees for 5 months. Exclusively from the oldest block on the property, free-run juice
Pinot Gris exclusively from our oldest block on the Allendale property was cropped to 2.5 tons/acre.
Harvested on September 24, 2018, only the free-run juice was fermented in neutral French oak barrels. Lees stirring was performed throughout the fermentation and altogether the wine was aged on lees for 5 months in barrel before blending and bottling.
