Tresillian Cox Block Pinot Gris 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for this wine were handpicked on 9 May 2006 at 20 brix. Low crop levels and careful vineyard management produced intense fruit flavours in the grapes. The wine has aromas and flavours of fragrant honey, spiced apple and fresh summer flowers with citrus overtones. The natural grape sugars are beautifully balanced by crisp acidity to give this wine a pleasing mouthfeel, making it an excellent aperitif. Serve only slightly chilled. Excellent with fish and shellfish. The wine is made in a medium dry style. Residual sugar: 15g/L

Tresillian is located on the Canterbury Plains of the South Island of New Zealand. The Estate vineyard is situated on a flat but sheltered site with silt loam soils over ancient riverbed of the Waimakariri river. Canterbury is a "Cool climate" growing region, -which results in  the wines having a loads of fruit characters, natural minerality, and lifted crisp acidity. Overall, the climate is mild and dry, which is emminently suited to producing fine Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Riesling wines. The Family lease vineyards on Banks Peninsula. These lie nestled on the Northern Slopes of French Farm Valley, a very beautiful and tranquil spot. The soils were formed by volcanic action some 7 million years ago. The rich loamy, clay based soils, along with the warmer climate help produce rich Pinot Noir wines, and lifted floral romas in the rieslings. Read less
