ELGEE PARK

Elgee Park Pinot Gris

Once picked it develops ripe pear and almond flavours. Fermented in old barrels with some lees stirring complements the richness of the fruit.  Poached pear and a soft nuttiness fold into a full palate. A beautifully balanced wine with maximum fruit weight, it’s freshness remains all the way to the crisp dry finish

PALATE

Poached pear and almond predominate, folding into the full palate. A beautifully balanced wine with maximum fruit weight, its freshness remains all the way to the crisp dry finish

VINTAGE

A perfect late Spring and early Summer resulted in the best flowering and fruit set we have seen for many years. It was followed by a dry and mild ripening period. The berries show intense perfume and great flavour which has produced exceptionally balanced wines.

WINEMAKING

Whole bunch pressed directly to old French oak barrels for fermentation and matured on lees in barrel with occasional stirring for greater textural complexity. It was racked, stabilised and prepared for bottling in late June.
