Municipal Wines Pinot Gris Rose

   



2019 Single Vineyard Pinot Gris Rose



Tasting Notes

Colour: Exceptionally bright iridescent copper with shimmering bronze edges.
Aroma: Intense and complex with red apple skin, white blossom, strawberry, rose petal, Turkish delight and a hint of struck match.
Palate: Dry yet textural with red apple, nashi pear and a touch of flint, great acid drive and wonderful length and freshness.


Wine Profile

Region:
Strathbogie Ranges
Vintage: 2019
Variety: 100% Pinot Gris
Production: 136 Cases
Harvested: 13/2/2019
pH: 3.19
T/A: 7.71
Alcohol: 13.0%
Vinification: Two day cold soak, followed by wild fermentation with 5 days on skins and gentle punch-downs once a day to extract the amazing bronze/copper colour from the skins as well as the red apple and pear aromatics without extracting too much tannin, before being pressed off into barrel for the remaining 23 days of fermentation with lees stirring twice weekly to increase complexity and mouthfeel.
Maturation: Lees stirring continued twice weekly on full solids for another two months to give a creaminess to balance the acid on the palate. The wine was then immediately racked and bottled to retain freshness.
