CW Winemakers Series 2019 Pinot Gris
"It’s beautifully styled and fragrant, showing fresh pear, apricot, rockmelon and white floral aromas on the nose. The palate delivers succulent fruit intensity and lovely weight, wonderfully complemented by silky mouthfeel and bright acidity. It’s elegant yet flavoursome with a persistent finish. At its best: now to 2023." *93 points* - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Higher than average rainfall during winter and early spring. Cool night-time vineyard temperatures developed stable flavours and tannins. Harvesting was able to commence with low grape-sugar concentration. Exceptional vintage.
Sourced from selected Pinot Gris vineyards located in the premium growing area of Limestone Coast.
The fruit was picked early morning and immediately pressed to retain the light and fresh characters typical of a Pinot Gris. The wine was fermented cool and matured on leaves for 6 months to build subtle texture and complexity prior to bottling.
Enjoy with grilled fish or even a simple roast chicken.
This 2019 Pinot Gris is perfumed and lifted fruit-driven wine with abundant vibrant pear, apple and peach characters. Crisp and fresh with a rounded mid palate and the wine lingers with complex fresh fruit flavours.
