Words from the distributor, Bibendum
Made in a pure-fruited, medium-bodied style that takes its inspiration from Burgundy rather than northern Italy or Alsace, this finely weighted Gris is drawn from a north/northeast-facing site in Merricks. The fruit was hand-sorted in the vineyard and winery, then whole-bunch pressed into old barriques for a wild ferment, which included a 10% whole-bunch component for three weeks). Maturation was on solids in old neutral barrel for seven months. It's a deliciously exuberant wine with zippy and ripe lemon, straw and solidsy aromas and flavours. A clean, dry and spicy close. Loads of interest here.
