2017 Black Label Pinot Gris

2017 Black Label Pinot Gris

This is a beautiful and complex style of Pinot Gris that is grown in the cooler climate of the hills surrounding the Yarra Valley. A very European style of Pinot Gris with a touch of sweetness, and a complex, textural palate. There is a wonderful array of intriguing flavours of citrus, rose petal, lychees, lemon and spice.

Tasting Notes
"Great to see a Pinot Gris with a little blush. A mighty fine example of the variety right here. Beautiful aromas of white flowers, pear and lemon rind. Spiced pear and a dash of citrus dominate the mouth before soft textural feels, courtesy of 30% whole bunch pressed to older oak. Delicate white pepper spice strolls through in a casual manner. 3.5g/L of residual sugar add a neat touch. The long, lingering finish a winner. Very good. Drink now to three years. 92/100."

Vineyard Notes
2017 is shaping to be an outstanding vintage with the quality of the fruit reaching the winery in superb condition. The cool temperatures that marked the beginning of Summer were ideal and the warm temperatures when they arrived ripened the grapes nicely. The fruit was hand-harvested and picked at the optimum balance of sweetness and crisp acidity, while maintaining the lovely, fresh fruit flavours.
Winemaker Notes
The free run juice was fermented partially in stainless steel and partially in seasoned oak barrels and inoculated with wild yeast to introduce elements of complexity. Once fermentation was complete the wine was age on lees for six months, partially in seasoned oak and partially in tank to encourage textural complexity. The wine was then filtered and bottled.
