VINTAGE SUMMARY
Marlborough experienced a mild-to-cool spring period, which ensured that the vines naturally produced lighter than average yields. These mild temperatures then extended into the summer months, coupled with an unseasonal period of rain, which ultimately alleviated the drought conditions we had experienced over the past two years. These conditions were perfect for producing a lower in alcohol wine with ripe fruit flavours. This year’s Pinot Gris is showing the flavoursome characteristics which our Seaview vineyard is renowned for - nashi pear, honey and exotic fruits, hallmarked by a finely balanced fresh mineral acidity.

WINEMAKING
Winemaker: Natalie Christensen
Harvest Date: 3rd - 10th April 2017
Winemaking Analysis: Alc 9.5% pH 3.25 TA 6.6 RS 5.3g/l
The fruit was de-stemmed and pressed gently, separating the free juice from the pressings. The juice was cold settled for 48 hours then racked prior to a long cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks to capture and enhance the fruit flavours of pear, honey and stone fruit. Following fermentation the wine was blended, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
