Winemaking/Viticulture

An exceptionally cool vintage with steady rain throughout the growing and ripening season meant the vines developed robust canopies, while a relatively cool December, January and February allowed for optimal ripening.

Flavors developed evenly and grapes were harvested in late February through to early March capturing the varietal essence of Pinot Grigio.

These grapes, and the indigenous yeast that transformed them into wine, have created layers of flavor and richness. After fermentation the wine was left on yeast lees for three months and stirred every week to imbue a complexity and creaminess to the wine and richness to the palate.
