Stoney Range Pinot Gris

Careful fruit selection, cool fermentation and extended lees contact has produced a Pinot Gris with intense pear and peach aromas with hints of elegant florals.  The wine has a smooth mouth-feel with refreshing length and finish.

A wine to be enjoyed anytime over the next three years, this is perfect with slightly spicy dishes.

The fruit was harvested mid April in excellent condition. A number of treatments on the fruit followed – whole bunch fermentation, extended skin contact, indigenous fermentation and barrel fermentation. The wines were then blended together prior to bottling.
