alex.gold Pinot Gris 2015
Ripe sweet pear and stone fruit aromas on the nose, together with some citrus and melon. Pear and stone fruit flavors show through on the palate, along with tropical fruit such as melon and pineapple.
This wine has a touch of sweetness on the front palate together with a mouth filling, creamy texture and a balanced acidity. Good persistence on the finish.
"A very enjoyable wine that's quite complete, with character, personality, and mystery. If you like Pinot Gris where you get just a little bit of that spice and silkiness, then this is the wine for you. It's racy and bright and juicy." - Cameron Douglas (MS)
Davishon Vineyard is trellised on a Geneva double curtain and spur pruned to 10 shoots per metre. It is extensively thinned to 6 tonnes per hectare and harvested by hand. The fruit was hand harvested on 18 April 2015 at 21.9 brix and was whole bunch pressed to tank. The juice was inoculated with a selected wine yeast and fermented in a stainless steel tank to retain the varietal/ fruity characteristics. The fermentation was stopped, retaining around 5.6g/L of residual sugar.
