The lead into the 2018 vintage was wet wet wet, which delayed flowering and pushed the entire ripening period into much later territory than we are used to. These cooler conditions much suited high acid white varieties like Pinot Gris.
The fruit from the 2018 ‘Sfera’ Pinot Gris was harvested from our Block 3 East. Machine harvested at night to retain freshness, before haulage to the winery.
Four hours on skins and gently basket pressing has created a subtle blush hue to the wine. White stone fruit and fresh pears give texture to this wine, balanced by a racy lemon tart finish. Custard and green apples dance mid palate giving nice depth
The 2018 Pinot Grigio is delightfully fresh and bright - perfect for summer weather!
Pair with spicey Thai curry.
