2013 Pinot Gris

2013 Pinot Gris

This is the eighth Pinot Gris under the Northburn Station label. The 2013 vintage was excellent for Pinot Gris with smaller than average berries.  The fruit was harvested very clean, well balanced, fully ripe and with good varietal definition.

Tasting Notes

Winemaker's notes: "Hand-picked on 6th April from the Northburn Station vineyard. Whole bunch pressed and separated into tank and old oak barrels. Approximately 40% underwent full solids, completely natural, wild fermentation in the barrels. One Acacia barrel was used to develop a new dimension. The wine had extended lees contact and was bottled without any fining”

Colour: Straw
Bouquet: Ripe pear fruit underpinned with a white pepper spice.
Palate: Dry with pear, biscuit crumbs and yeasty bread flavours.  Rich and warming with clean textural qualities. A balanced and lingering finish. 

A very food friendly wine that will match a wide range of dishes.
