On the Fly 2021 Pinot Gris
Single vineyard Pinot Gris grapes from Mount Tumbarumba Vineyard
Hand picked: 12 March 2021
Bottled: 1 June 2021
Production: 325 dozen bottles
Very pale straw with a hint of green
White peach fruit aromas with a touch of spice
Rich amalgam of flavours – ripe fruit and spice. Lovely viscous mouthfeel with a cleansing acidity on the finish.
What Alex Mackay and Léonore Salancon (our winemakers) did
The grapes were 100% whole bunch pressed with the juice then fermented in stainless steel. The fermentation was stopped before all the grape sugars were converted to alcohol. This process balances out the natural acidity of the wine and promotes fruit weight on the palate.
