Mt Difficulty Roaring Meg Pinot Gris 2017
100% Pinot Gris from vineyards in Central Otago’s Cromwell basin.
Hand harvested fruit was processed in a reductive manner, with the juice settled overnight and racked clean the following morning. The wine was fermented cool, to help maximise varietal character. The wine was stop fermented in an off-dry style to provide some palate weight and texture. The wine was not fined before being filtered and bottled.
Delicious ripe aromatics showcasing yellow fleshed stonefruit with complexing white floral notes. An introduction of succulent peach and rock melon leads into a full textured mid-palate and a ripe phenolic-driven finish, which nicely balances the off-dry style.

"Attractive nose of ripe pear and stonefruit with nutty nuances; nice freshness too. The palate unfolds with creaming soda, cooked apple, pear, adding lanolin and spice with aeration. A whisper of sweetness here balanced by zesty acidity. This shows delicious balance, building in weight and texture. A smart little wine and rather moreish."
