Derwent Estate Pinot Gris
Winemaking: Picked at flavour ripeness, the grapes were in perfect condition on arrival at the winery where they were crushed and cold soaked for several hours, then pressed with the utmost care. The juice was then fermented at a very low temperature to enhance flavour retention. Once ferment finished the wine was Lees stirred daily for four weeks to add complexity and texture. Although barely noticeable, a few grams per litre of natural grape sugars have been retained in this wine to balance the acidity.
Aroma: An enticing bouquet of poached pears and floral aromatics make this a wine that demands to be sampled.
Palate: A blend of citrus and stone fruits and bright acidity excite the taste buds and fill the mouth. This refreshing wine finishes with plenty of length.
