Freefall Pinot Gris 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Sourced from one of the best Pinot Gris vineyards in Waipara (located 40 minutes north of Christchurch) the fruit was crushed and destemmed before cold settling the juice. The texture and viscocity resulted from a low press extraction. A cool ferment built the fresh fruit characters, which was then followed by 3 months on light fermentation lees. It was finally fined and filtered before release.

Freefall:
New Zealand adventurer and co-founder of bungy jumping, Henry van Asch along with brother-in-law Tom Hutchison, grow Freefall's grapes in the Central Otago and Marlborough regions. Made to excite and satisfy, Freefall wines havee an upfront andd contemporary style.

Tasting Notes:

Our first Freefall Pinot Gris is a wine that can be tasted any time of day. It is like a social chameleon that adapts to your mood. With aromas of pear, white peaches and flavors of apricot juice, the rich luscious texture makes this new comer one of our most morish and a welcome addition to the Freefall stable.
