Only the highest quality fraction of free-run juice has been used in this Pinot Gris, with most from whole-cluster pressed hand-picked bunches. This portion has been cool-fermented on light grape solids to add some round texture and flavor complexity. The balance of the wine is from night-time machine harvesting, where clear-settled juice has been fermented at low temperature to enhance aromatic intensity.
The 2021 Pinot Gris Sleepers Vineyard Kēkerengu Coast is an incredibly clear, silvery Pinot Gris reflecting the very delicate handling of the grapes, which are hand-harvested and whole-bunchpressed before being fermented in inert, stainless steel tanks. This is a pure, floral and airy expression of the variety, with apple fruit and citrus on the clean, precise finish. There's a touch of tannic grip adding texture and tension to this virtually dry Pinot Gris.
