TASTING NOTE:The fruit for this wine came from the Northburn and Ramsay vineyards from the Cromwell basin as well as the Brennan, Rafters Road and Wentworth vineyards in Gibbston. The 2006 vintage was a very good harvest for Pinot Gris with well balanced fruit a good varietal definition.

All the fruit was carefully hand harvested between the 30th of March and the 22nd of April. The fruit was destemmed and crushed prior to gentle pressing. A portion of the fruit was left in the press with skins and juice together for 14 hours to help extract varietal character from the skins. The resulting juice was cool stainless steel fermented to retain fruit character. The wine was left on yeast lees for two months to help with mouth feel and complexity.

The resulting wine abounds with pear, red apple and stonefruit. It is well balanced, luscious and mouth filling with great persistence

Lovely drinking now, this wine will continue to develop over the next few years.
