Several parcels of Pinot Gris went into this blend. Pinot Gris was harvested from vineyard blocks comprising differing soils and micro-climates, as well as different aged vines. The parcels were harvested and fermented separately prior to blending at a much later stage. The resulting wine has a broad palate and is full flavoured, bringing a unique and complex spectrum of characters to the finished wine.
On the nose, pretty floral elements along with quince fruits. The palate has a grainy fine phenolic texture with mouth filling ripe pear and guava flavours, and a long memorable finish.
