On the banks of the River Dart, Pinot Gris thrives in a relatively warm microclimate. Essentially a natural wine, the juice spends 3 weeks on skins before wild fermentation. An exciting wine which highlights the potential for England to develop its own distinctive styles of classic varietals. The juice has soaked in contact with the skins for three- to four-weeks to extract some flavour, colour and tannin before the free-run juice is transferred into stainless steel where spontaneous fermentation takes place with the naturally occurring wild yeasts.
The nose has vibrant notes of nectarine, green citrus and fennel. The palate is bursting with sour stone fruit and it shows taught, pithy grapefruit like texture with a touch of spice and gentle tannins. The finish is clean and refreshing. A great pairing with fresh grilled fish, crab or as an aperitif or aromatic Asian dishes.
