Wine Maker notes
The 2022 growing season began with significant rain, marking the end of three years of drought in Marlborough. A period of warmth in early December produced a welcome and better than average fruit set. In late February we had a couple of significant rains which replenished the soil moisture levels that had been reduced during summer. During the two weeks that followed, They had cool days and nights which meant the acidities remained on the high side. Harvest coincided with the peak of New Zealand’s Omicron outbreak, which put some pressure on staffing. Excellent teamwork meant they were able to harvest the fruit as it was ready, retaining vibrant acidity and concentrated fruit flavour.
After harvesting, the Pinot Gris fruit was gently pressed, and the juice was floated and clean and racked for fermentation. Selected yeast strains were used at cool and warm temperatures, giving the wine vibrant fresh fruit and a weighty textural element. The fermentation was stopped, slightly off-dry.
