2020 En Soleil Pinot Gris
Style: Rich with layered texture, fully certified biodynamic and vegan friendly.
The Inspiration: Our En Soleil Pinot Gris is grown by the Koch family in Wrattonbully and the winemaking is all about preserving the exceptional fruit quality they provide us.
The grapes were immediately pressed following harvest to minimise pick up of colour from the pink-skinned grapes. They were gently pressed into a combination of new and old French oak and stainless tank. The ferment was achieved with a mix of inoculated and wild yeast. At the end of the ferment, the barrels were left without sulphur and stirred on lees for increased mouthfeel and complexity.
Tasting notes: Palate is rich with spiced pear, melon and floral notes. Layered with texture, balanced acidity and complexity from subtle oak and time on yeast lees.
Cellaring: Made in a drink-now style but will become more tertiary and complex over the next two years, if you can wait that long.
Food Pairing: Perfect with full-flavoured seafood like crayfish and scallops as well as most rich Asian foods.
