Food Pairings for Envoy Pinot Gris
Pinot Gris produces low yields of concentrated grapes on a stony riverbed terrace in our Marlborough vineyard. Grapes are gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks to give intense floral and fresh pear flavours. This wine is produced from very ripe grapes, with intense aromas and a rich, minerally, persistent palate. Country New Zealand Region Marlborough Vineyards Johnson Estate Variety 100% Pinot Gris Harvest Date 20 March - 2 April 2006 Brix at Harvest 23 - 25 °Brix Viticulturalist Adam McCone Soils Shallow and stony soils with overlying sandy loam. Winemakers Ant Mackenzie, Jayne Grigg and Paul Bourgeois Winemaking After picking and pressing, the individual parcels were tank fermented at warm temperatures. At the end of fermentation the wines were aged on full fermentation lees for four months. Colour Pale straw Bouquet Ripe pears and stewed apple with an underlying custard note. Palate The softness of structure is gently enhanced by the impression of â€˜fatnessâ€™ giving the wine wonderful balance and length.
