Description

Pale straw with clear hues in the glass. Pretty and fragrant with ripe pear, pineapple, white peach, florals and vanilla notes. A rich stonefruit entry with peach, pineapple, nashi pear and hints of brioche. Mouth-filling and complex with ripe phenols and a long creamy finish.

The fruit was hand harvested on 28th March 2018 (22.6 brix) and whole bunch pressed to tank. The juice was inoculated with selected wine yeasts. Twenty three percent of the juice was barrel fermented in older French oak barrels with the balance fermented in a stainless steel tank. The fermentation was stopped retaining around 7g/L of residual sugar.

Three Miners Vineyard is situated in Earnscleugh Valley half way between Alexandra and Clyde. The soil type is shallow Molyneux sandy loam with some stony sand. The vineyard was established in 2000 by Jeff Price and Julie Mitchell when they planted 4 ha of Pinot Noir. In 2002, another 9 ha of Pinot Noir vines were planted and in 2003, Julie and Jeff planted 2 ha of Pinot Gris and 1 ha each of Riesling and Gewürztraminer. The last plantings were in 2007 and 2009 which added another hectare of Pinot Gris.

Food pairing: Antipasto, roast chicken and seafood
