The Ned Pinot Gris 2016The Ned Pinot Gris 2016
Size: 750ml

Variety 100% Pinot Gris. Viticulture Vertical shoot positioned, cane pruned and 2,500 plants per hectare. Soil is ancient riverbed comprised of free draining stony silt with loam topsoil. Vintage An extended growing season coupled with some extremely warm temperatures during April resulted in outstanding physiological ripening and flavour development in our Pinot Gris vines. The overall result was Pinot Gris fruit with exceptional depth of flavour and aroma at lower sugar levels which provided a natural balance to the resulting wine. Winemaking Temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks with yeast selected for their ability to capture aromatic intensity and enhance the texture and complexity. Analysis Alcohol 13% pH 3.45 Titratable Acidity 6.3g/l Residual Sugar 6.5g/l Colour Pale gold with a salmon blush. Aroma Pristine aromas of fresh citrus and white pear with a persistent floral lift of white rose petal and jasmine. Palate A beautifully textured wine showing rich, ripe flavours of fleshy nectarine and baked apple. Concentrated and fully flavoured with a beautifully dry finish. Food Matching A truly versatile food wine, this delightful Pinot Gris is just as enjoyable alongside Thai green chicken curry as it is with smoked salmon and aioli on fresh baguette. Cellaring Potential 2-3 years.
