Loveblock Pinot Gris 2012
Like its red counterpart, Pinot Gris is a varietal with delicate flavours, but unlike Pinot Noir, it tends to crop heavily. We manage the canopy and the crop carefully to manage vine balance and to get the desired flavours. Five clones have been selected for their various flavours and vine characteristics. We seek structure for the delicate flavours of Pinot Gris, together with texture and mouth feel. We like to make (technically)dry wine, giving it a bit of time in bottle before release.
Wine SpectatorA crisp, light-bodied white, with focused notes of pear and melon that are elegant, accented with an appealing almond skin and grapefruit zest bitterness, resulting in a mouthwatering finish. Drink now.
