 WINEMAKING NOTES

From an early pick of our Whitty Vineyard in Creek Shores, our Vin Gris is the result of classic white wine-making techniques used on red grapes – full bunches put into the press, free run juice collected and a very soft pressing, resulting in just the faintest tint of pink. The wine was bottled in March 2020 following a light fining and filtration.

92 Points -- Sara d'Amato -- WineAlign

“Lovely, fresh and appealing with notable saltiness. Almost Provençal in character, dry and succulent. Offering plentiful floral notes as well as strawberry and peach. Clean and succinct with lovely precision. Tasted May 2020.”

90 Points -- Michael Godel -- WineAlign

“Made with gamay from the home Whitty Vineyard, named Vin Gris and mostly by free-run with just a little bit of pressed juice blended in. Ostensibly Rosé though splitting hairs should be left for the purists. Salty and as close to a Vin Gris heart as you’re going to get so laud the style and offer kudos to the sapidity, briny berry and fine execution. Surely musky and also a flavour profile that puts sour mango against yellow fleshed melon. And so very dry. Drink 2020-2022. Tasted May 2020.”
