Tresillian Pinot Gris 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes were transported to the winery in picking baskets to avoid damage from bulk handling. They were hand-tipped into the crusher/destemmer and gravity fed to the press before fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The primary ferment took place under Canterbury’s normal cool conditions and was complete after 21 days.

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

Tasting Notes:

The 2009 Pinot Gris presents as a crystal clear, green-tinged wine. The aromas offer subtle ripe pear, white peach with intriguing banana confectionary notes. These carry through to the palate accompanied by a crisp acidity and the textural mouthfeel of the best of the varietal.

The grapes were transported to the winery in picking baskets to avoid damage from bulk handling. They were hand-tipped into the crusher/destemmer and gravity fed to the press before fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
