Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is finely concentrated with aromatic white and yellow stonefruits lifted by exotic florals, rose-petal elements and complexing nutty and flinty nuances. The palate has depth, following a light phenolic-textured line with integrated, lacy acidity, and the wine carries to a long and lingering finish of stonefruits and florals. This is a finely concentrated dryish Pinot Gris with aromatic and exotic fruit, light textures and fresh acid poise.

Serve with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese fare over the next 3 years.

An elegant wine with a finely concentrated palate displaying aromatic white and yellow stonefruits lifted by exotic florals, rose-petal elements and complex nutty and flinty nuances. The wine shows excellent fruit intensity and silky texture, leading to a lingering smooth finish.

The fruit was sourced from three Starborough vineyards, all of which have complemented each other to produce an elegantly balanced and complex wine. The yield on the two cane VSP (vertical shoot position) trained vines were closely monitored through the growing season and targeted shoot and bunch thinning was performed to produce low yielding intensely concentrated fruit. A hand-pick took plce in the cool of early morning at peak maturity and flavour development.

The fruit was crushed and pressed quickly at cool temperatures to retain fruit flavour and freshness. A 10% portion of the juice was fermented in seasoned French oak barrels adding weight, texture and complexity to the finished wine. Before blending, the individual components were left on light yeast lees for three months helping build additional texture and creaminess to the palate.
