Rock Ferry Orchard Vineyard Pinot Gris on Skins 2017

Region:

Rapaura, Wairau Plains, Marlborough

Viticulture:

Our aim in the vineyard is to grow the best fruit we can so it can speak of its home and express its personality. To do this you need healthy vines and soil. By practicing organics and incorporating some biodynamic principles we believe we are doing our best to help achieve this and let our vineyards evolve and speak as they would like.

Winemaking:

This Pinot Gris was hand harvested from our Plum Tree Block, destemmed and wild fermented on skins for 21 days. It was then pressed into a seasoned neutral puncheon where it was aged on full lees for 9 months prior to bottling.

Tasting notes:

This full bodied Pinot Gris has a concentrated palate with stong flavours of peach and spice. A touch of tannin comes in leaving this wine with a serious finish but packed with personality.

Technical:

Alc 12.0% TA 5.8g/l pH 3.46 RS Dry

Winemaker:

Allan McWilliams
