Pinot Gris

Brand: Tamar Ridge
Varieties: Pinot Gris
Vintage: 2017
Bottle size: 750 mL
Awards and Recognition: 2018 KPMG Sydney Royal Wine Show
A rich textured wine showing excellent palate weight and structure.
Vineyard Region: Tasmania
Vintage: 2017
Color: The 2017 Pinot Gris has a bright pale straw colour.
Aroma: It is perfumed with hints of pear skin and stone fruit.
Palate: Ripe fruit flavours with splashes of sweet lycees, plus a level of nuttiness derived from time on yeast lees. The finish is clean and dry with good flavour persistence and lingering acidity.
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 14%
Peak Drinking: Until 2024
Growing Conditions: 100% Pinot Gris from our Estate own Vineyards located in the Tamar Valley and East Coast of Tasmania. The 2017 vintage was excellent across the board and especially for white varietals.
Winemaker: Tom Wallace
Winemaking Notes: Hand harvested fruit was pressed whole bunch to avoid colour pick up from the skins. After pressing 25% was transferred to French oak while the balance went to tank. A combination of cultured and wild yeast was used to complete the fermentation. The wine remained on yeast lees in tank and barrel to help build texture and palate weight. It was bottled with an alcohol of 14.0% a TA of 6.8g/l and a pH of 3.19.
