Monowai Pinot Gris 2015

Tasting Notes

Smooth and rich, this Pinot Gris has loads of spicy pear aromas with hints of lychee and floral notes. On the palate, aging sur lie has given a rich full-bodied texture which is balanced with a crisp finish and flavours of pear, spice and a hint of honey.

Winemaker's Notes

Fruit from our own vineyard was harvested at optimum ripeness, free run and pressing juice was fermented separately between 12-15˚C with yeast selected to maximise the natural fruit flavours. A portion of the wine was left sur lie to add complexity and enhance the richness of the wine. The parcels were then blended to achieve a fresh, full bodied Pinot Gris.
