100% Pinot Gris from Isabel Estate's own Marlborough vineyard.
Fruit was harvested in several parcels, some of which underwent a cold soak and some whole bunch pressed. All fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks. The ferments were stopped when taste, dryness, acidity and weight were all in harmony. The juice underwent some lees stirring to enhance mouth-feel and texture.
Rich aromas of nectarine, white pear, clover honey with hints of coconut. The palate has strong mineral definition, supple mouthfeel and good length due to the gentle lees ageing. A subtle and complex with persimmon, red apple and a faint suggestion of rose petal. An off-dry style, with lovely fruit ripeness.
