TE KANO PINOT GRIS CENTRAL OTAGO 18
This Pinot Gris is 100% hand harvested from the Jerome vineyard which is well suited to Pinot Gris. Naturally low vigour and sandy soils help to produce smaller than usual berries with intense flavours and deeper phenolics, making for a structured and complex example of a classical variety.
Whole bunch pressed, this wine goes through a long, cool fermentation in stainless steel to preserve freshness and aromatics. Lees contact post fermentation helps to build the mid palate texture.
A concentrated and rich dry style Pinot Gris (around 5g/l residual sugar) with vibrant aromas of stone fruit, pear and spice. Flavours of peach and pear flesh out the entry into the palate, with ginger and spice notes unfolding.
