Dicey Bannockburn Pinot Gris 2021 750ML

An unsettled spring meant a slow start. After warmer temps mid-November the inclement weather — including low snowfall — continued into flowering. The vines set with small berries on compact bunches. There was a good amount of rain in January, then it dried out. Screaming windstorms visited over Easter but we got through. We brought the crop in at optimal ripeness. The fruit was disease free and delicious. Overall the season was warmer than normal, and the yields lower. 

Winemaker’s Notes

The fruit was harvested, foot stomped and left overnight. Whole bunch pressed. Cold settled for 10 days whilst a native starter was getting going. Juice was fermented on full solids. We used a mix of fermentation tanks to increase texture through additional lees contact. The wine fermented to dry, was left on full solids for four months with the odd lees stir. Filtered but not fined.

Tasting Notes
