The aromas on the Whitehaven Pinot Gris are of ripe pear and quince fruit flavours, with hints of talc, cinnamon and nutmeg spice. A medium bodied wine with a soft, supple texture supporting the fresh fruit and spice flavours that persist on the long, crisp finish.
This Pinot Gris is made to be best enjoyed with food. We recommend dishes featuring smoked salmon, mushrooms or light game. Pasta and egg dishes also should match well.
Some of the fruit was hand-picked and whole cluster pressed. The clear juice was fermented at very low temperature with selected yeast strains to preserve the inherent fruit flavours. After fermentation, the wine was regularly stirred on the yeast lees to aid the creamy texture and mouth feel.
