2016 Sandpiper Pinot Gris

Comments

The wine has bright lifted aromas of nashi pears and spice. Intense pear like palate, clean citrus acid backbone. Underlying spicy character adds to the wines charm.  A clean and lingering finish.

 

Vinification Notes

Harvest was carried out at night.  The fruit was pressed (using an airbag press). After settling the juice was warmed and inoculated with a neutral yeast selected for its ability to respect the purity of the fruit. 

Post fermentation the wine was stabilized, minimally fined, filtered then bottled.

 

Vintage Notes

A warm dry spring led to into similarly dry conditions in December and January.  The warm weather brought harvest on in the first week of February.  A couple of good rain events led to milder conditions slowed down the ripening and allowed the fruit to develop well.  Whites from 2016 show good flavour and balance.
