100% Prince Edward County grown. The County Pinot Gris benefited from a lovely warm fall, despite a challenging start to the growing season. The fruit obtained beautiful phenolic ripeness and a generous mouthfeel, but still retains the hallmark County acidity and minerality. Fermented by wild yeasts and aged in stainless steel on fine lees for six months before bottling.
This Pinot Gris starts with subtle spice and floral notes then finishes off with a pure and crystalline finish.

Our Pinot Gris is 100% local county fruit from our estate vineyard and a neighbouring site. The wine went through a wild fermentation in stainless steel, at cooler temperatures between 15 and 19C. This was followed by 4 months ageing on the lees. We've kept the wine from going through malolactic fermentation, and finished it in a dry style.
This wine starts rich and voluptuous on the palate with ample spice, but finishes clean and crisp with a mineral inspired acidic finish. Suggested Drinkability Window: Now through 2015.
