2007 Sandpiper Pinot Gris

Comments

The colour is mid straw. The nose shows lifted fruits with subtle notes of pear and almonds. The palate is medium bodied with Nashi pears and apple puree. There is a lovely richness and viscosity which can be attributed to the extended time on yeast. The wine finishes clean and crisp with great length of fruit.

Vinification Notes

Crushed, destemmed and then pressed using a membrane press. Pressings were not used. Fermented using French Yeast at 12-15 degrees Celcius. The ferment was kept slow and cool to retain all the natural flavours of the grape. The wine was then racked and filtered. Bottling took place soon afterwards so the wine was a true expression of the grape and the terroir from which it was made.

Vintage Notes

2007 Vintage had a mild and long ripening season. These conditions favoured the accumulation of fruit driven and vibrant wines with great acidity.
