This wine was produced from fruit grown in the Moutere Hills which underwent gentle whole-cluster pressing.
15% aged sur lie in aged French oak barrels, 85% aged sur lie in stainless steel tanks.
Tasting notesConcentrated Pinot Gris with strong varietal characters.
Citrus blossom, pears and tropical fruit aromas and flavours
combine with a firm backbone of minerality and acidity.
Oily, opulent textures fill the mouth and linger on the palate.
