Tamar Valley, Tasmania
The grapes were grown by Bruce McCormack in Rosevears in the Tamar Valley of Tasmania. A single site with nine rows of 20-year-old Pinot Gris grape vines. The grapes are handpicked and made locally at Utzinger Wines in Legana.
This wine was 50% fermented in 3-year-old French barrels and 50% in stainless steel vessels.
This Pinot Gris is elegant, full-bodied and displays lifted aromatics typical of authentic Tasmanian cool climate Pinot Gris grapes. Ripened pear and tropical fruit characters are present with the bronze colour of the wine intentionally extracted from the grapes by extended time on skins. Extended time on lees adds to the complexity of this wine.
Drink lightly chilled to allow delicate fruit flavours to develop.
