Rock Ferry Trig Hill Pinot Gris 2016
$39.90 inc. GST
Tasting Note: Uplifting aromas of pear and hay with soft ﬂoral notes dominating on the nose. Sweet citrus flavours of nectarine & mandarin come through on the palate before moving through to a touch of savoury spice and ﬁnishing with a satisfying round mouthfeel.
Winemaking Notes: A lot of work is done in the vineyard for this wine. We hand harvest then ferment in a mixture of stainless steel tanks and older puncheons to build complexity. The wine is made with minimal intervention, hand harvested, whole bunch pressed, and only the free run juice is used – to achieve finesse and provide longevity to the wine. We use a mixture of cultured yeast and wild yeast to impart nuances of flavours and the wine was matured on lees for 6 months to build texture and enhance the mouth feel.
