Private Bin Pinot Grigio 2020

East Coast
  • 75cl bottle

This Pinot Grigio has fresh and intense aromatics of pear, red apple and honeysuckle, leading to a rich and textured mouthfeel and a delicious off-dry finish.

Vineyards

This wine consists of a variety of parcels blended from different vineyard sites across several key regions. The warmer Gisborne region provides ripe fruit with soft acidity and the South Island provides freshness and aromatics

Vintage

A near-perfect growing season led up to 2020 harvest with fruit in pristine condition. The summer was dry with high sunshine hours during the day and the cooler nights that are typical for Marlborough. Yields were at their optimum level and the stable autumn weather allowed us to extend the hangtime of the fruit on the vines to achieve physiological ripeness.

Winemaking

The fruit is gently pressed and the juice settled and clarified prior to cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks with selected aromatic yeast strains. A brief period of yeast lees ageing follows prior to blending and preparation for bottling.
