Reserve Pinot Gris 2019
Our 2019 Reserve Pinot Gris is vibrant straw yellow in the glass. On the nose, it has intense aromas of honeysuckle, spring flowers and ripe yellow pear. On the palate, it is medium-bodied with soft acidity and flavours of poached pear, green tea, white peach and fruit salad with a touch of waxy honey, vanilla and spice. The finish is long and fruity with a touch of savoury spice.
Enjoy now with roasted pork tenderloin with caramelized pear and shallots or age for the short term to develop additional complexities.Download Notes

BRIX AT HARVEST
This Pinot Gris was sourced exclusively from our Home Farm Vineyard located at the corner of Fourth Avenue and Seventh Street in the Creek Shores sub-appellation. Harvest was in mid-September. Following harvest, the grapes were crushed and destemmed before gentle pressing. The grapes were then fermented and aged in seasoned French oak barrels of varying sizes (228L, 400L and 500L) for 12 months. After light fining and filtration, the wine was bottled in April, 2021.a
