Barrel Fermented Pinot Gris
 
Sourced from a beautifully maintained single vineyard on Main Ridge, Mornington Peninsula. Grapes were hand picked in the cool of the early morning & cropped at 1 tonne to the acre. Upon arriving at the winery, the bunches were destemmed and transferred into a 100 year old, traditional basket pressed. After a gentle hand pressing, the juice was racked to seasoned French oak barriques for fermentation & maturation for approximately 11 months with some occasional battonage.

PALATE & AROMA
Pale bran straw in colour. Ripe stone fruit and cumquats on the nose with hints of apricot, dried fruit and a touch of orange blossom. The palate is generous and viscous with a slight phenolic grip, oak complexity and a firm acid line. Delicious
