Esk Valley Pinot Gris 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a full bodied and rich style of Pinot Gris. Barrel fermentation has provided the wine with richness but without oak characters and the early picked sites have provided fresh, natural acidity to the finished blend. Aromatics and flavours of stone fruits, honey and pears dominate with a hint of spice providing complexity. This wine finishes dry making it an ideal accompaniment to good food.

Esk Valley is famous for its premium wine "The Terraces", which is only released those years when the terraced vines on the banks above the winery, produce an exceptional vintage Esk Valley is a boutique winery, but it is unique in that many of the techniques used to craft its award-winning wines are dictated by the winery itself. The old concrete vats, the layout of the buildings, and the absence of modern technology mean the people at Esk Valley have had to make wine in a simple, honest, hands-on way. The people at Esk Valley are as important to the wine-making process as the vines and the high quality grapes they produce. The main pre-requisite for working at Esk Valley is a genuine passion and excitement for wine. Read less
