Quantity :

Bob Campbell Ripe pinot gris with punchy tree fruit, pear, mango, honeysuckle and root ginger flavours. A smooth-textured wine, with a backbone of refreshing acidity that helps drive a lengthy finish. Dry but certainly not austere 30 JUN 2020 Drink - 2020–2023.

We believe that the elements of a good Pinot Gris are a perceived weight and texture on the palate. Made from 100% Estate Grown, BioGro certified organic, Central Otago Pinot Gris. The fruit was crushed, then pressed and fermented using wild yeast to foster complexity. It was fermented in a combination of old French oak barrels (36%) and stainless tank. The barrels remained on ferment lees for 7 months, which added additional texture and weight to the blend. There is also a hint of residual sugar to add balance to the palate.
Origin: Carrick Vineyards, Bannockburn, Central Otago.

Hand-picked in: March 2018
Bottled: November 2018
Cases: 2000 x 6 bottle cases
Residual Sugar: 2.76g/L
Our Pinot Gris has a textural element on the palate that is reflective of an Alsatian style whilst retaining a clean acidity that is the hallmark of our windblown glacial soils on the Cairnmuir terraces in Bannockburn. Notes of pear
and fresh Braeburn apples are present, balanced by a hint of clove spice.

Biodynamic principles, practiced from 2011.
Organically certified since 2008, to EU equivalence.
