Pinot Gris in the hands of Eveline Fraser (ex Cloudy Bay) produces an incredibly complex and passionately characterful wine.Delightfully aromatic and texturally unique this is a wine that is fruit dri ven & sumptuous with stone-fruit characters of nectarine, apricot and quince.Totally charming. Oily, rich, roundàyou'll be licking your lips. Moreish!

In the vineyard

The key to Pinot Gris is balance, ripeness and concentration. But with Pinot Gris, this is quite a difficult thing to achieve as it is a naturally very vigorous variety.So the Insight viticultural tea m work very hard to manage the foliage and the yield in order to achieve the required balance and concentration. Much of this work is done by hand to ensure it is done with precision.

In the winery

The Pinot Gris is a variety that responds well to being hand harvested. Once at the winery, the bins of fruit are loaded into a tank press and whole bunch pressed to avoid extracting the natural pheno lics the variety carries.Only free run juice is taken and housed in stainless steel tanks during fermentation as a means of preserving the natural flavours and aromatics.
