Mount Riley Pinot Gris
The grapes for this wine were grown in the Wairau and Awatere Valley’s of Marlborough. The Awatere fruit provides freshness and acidity and the Wairau fruit a riper flavor spectrum.
Nose: Bright florals with apple and pear notes underscored with a fresh herbal seam with compliments of spice Palate The wine is just off-dry with ripe fruit flavors, rich texture and fresh acidity
They harvested the fruit during the night in cool temperatures so that the natural flavors and aromatics were preserved. The grapes were gently pressed and the juice settled prior to fermentation. A small percentage was fermented in barrel to accentuate texture and complexity in the wine while the remainder was fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures to retain the bright, varietal aromatics.
