PINOT GRIS 2014
The Devil’s Tasting Note
Refreshing, rich and exotic. This wine treats the taste buds with its seductive flavours, that tempt, nay taunt the soul for just one more sip. Let the apricot, peach and spice wrap a backbone of flavour around your palate as the citric twist of acidity cuts through to a clean and satisfying finish. This is a wine that sparks your senses and stirs the dark side to indulge. Match with a host of foods from spicy Thai and Chinese cuisines to summer salads with a lemon infused dressing. It also pairs beautifully with a ‘hot-as-hell’ day on the patio with your favourite book.
~ Whole bunch pressing over five hours to maintain flavour intensity was a crucial step in the winemaking process. The wine was cool-fermented over two weeks in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. No malolactic occurred.
The purity of our fruit allowed us to bottle this wine without fining, harnessing the full and true flavour of our high quality grapes. The wine was cold stabilized and sterile filtered prior to bottling.
