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.

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.

Review content/excerpt:A lot of people get Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio mixed up … but it’s not their fault, wineries and winemakers have been using the term Grigio on everything made from the Pinot Gris grape since the term became popular a couple of years back. Now it doesn’t matter if it has the citrus of Grigio or the white fruit of Gris … thanks fully Norm Hardie knows the difference and the Gris he promises on the label is the Gris you get in the mouth. Apples, peaches and pears all come together in the mouth for a beauty of summer fruit salad with nice mouthfeel and good acidity to hang its hat on. This is an easy drinking wine that’s perfect for the summer season.
