Description

This Mystery Pinot Gris displays a wonderfully lifted nose of peach and pear. The beautifully balanced wine is off-dry and packed with concentrated stone fruit flavours complemented by a bit of spice. The texture is smooth and weighty, leaving a lasting impression which makes the wine very appealing with or without food.

2018 was a vintage that started hot and dry with great weather at flowering followed by record sunshine and higher than average temperatures though till February. This resulted in nice ripe flavours while the grapes retained lovely acidity. Carefully managed yields meant the desired ripeness levels were achieved. The resulting wine possesses lovely, lifted white peach and pear aromatics and a generous, textural palate balanced with a fine acidity.

The grapes are harvested in the cool of the morning and rushed to the winery. After gentle crushing, the juice undergoes fermentation in stainless steel tanks, using cultured yeast. The wine spends additional time in tank on lees with occasional stirring which adds complexity and weight to the finished wine.

Food Pairing: Delicious as a glass on its own, or lovely to accompany with all sorts of dishes from nibbles to pasta, Asian-style dishes, chicken and pork.
