2014 Mt. Difficulty Pinot Gris
Central Otago, South Island, New Zealand

Ripe apricot on the nose, white peach and nectarine on the palate, and just when you think it might become sweet, here comes the long, mineral driven finish. Plenty of body to stand up to roasted fowl or pork dishes.

Winemaker's Notes
"The cooler vintage of 2014 has resulted in aromas of white peach and pear blossom mingled with underlying crisp red apple notes. The palate displays ripe succulent peach notes, while the mid palate is full, creamy and well textured. The wine has a rich, spice infused finish."

Technical Notes
"The fruit was hand harvested in top condition from the 27th March to the 16th of April. The fruit was processed in a reductive manner, with the juice settled overnight and racked clean the following morning. The wine was fermented cool to help maximise varietal character. All the components were left on gross yeast lees for five months post fermentation with weekly stirring to help enhance the complexity and textural aspects of the wine. Mt Difficulty Bannockburn Estate Pinot Gris 2014 was bottled in October. 14% alc."
