2014 PIONEER SERIES Pinot Gris



Shaky Bridge Pioneer Series wines are crafted to deliver a high quality entry point to the

Winemakers Tasting Notes



Our 2014 Pioneer Series Pinot Gris is comprised of fruit harvested solely from our Pioneer
Vineyard on Dunstan Rd. A deliciously easy drinking Pinot Gris, the wine shows a broad
spectrum of fruit flavours including peach, nectarine, lemon zest and pear. We intentionally
make this wine in an approachable fruit forward style, with just enough residual sugar to
balance the natural acidity and to provide a smooth, enjoyable Pinot Gris experience. This
is the kind of wine you share with friends and is a trusty addition to any BBQ, picnic table, or any summer outing! This is high quality Pinot Gris at a very affordable price.


Shaky Bridge Wines is located in the stunningly beautiful Alexandra Basin of Central
Otago, New Zealand. Our source vineyards are situated below the 45th
Parallel in the southern most wine growing region on the globe. Our location is
ideally suited to the creation of the aromatic varieties of white wine, alongside Pinot Noir which is our
primary variety.



Sourcing fruit from 6 distinct blocks, varying in age from 10 - 30+ years, Shaky Bridge
Wines owns one of the oldest Pinot Noir vineyards in Central Otago. The various
locations, soil types and clones used within each block provides our winemaker, Dave
Grant, with a virtual painters pallet of flavors to create multi dimensional wines of
exceptional quality, depth and satisfaction.

Winemaking Notes
Quality Pinot Gris grapes were harvested and slowly whole bunch pressed over 5 hours to extract the purest juice and eliminate harsh tannins from stems, stalks and seeds.

Fermentation took place at cool temperatures over a two week period in Stainless Steel, with yeasts selected specifically for our style of Pinot Gris. The quality and purity of our fruit allowed for natural fining. The wine was cold stabilised and sterile filtered using cross-flow filtration prior to bottling.
