Ceres Swansong Vineyard Pinot Gris, Central Otago

Ceres Swansong Vineyard Pinot Gris, Central Otago

The Pinot Gris is sourced from the Full Circle Vineyard on Felton Road; this is the first single vineyard release for Ceres who believe it to be an excellent reflection of the location’s terroir. The grapes are processed in the absence of oxygen to ensure the delicate fruit aromas are retained. The juice was settled overnight and cool-fermented to further maximize the aromas. All components of this wine were left on gross lees for four months after fermentation, with weekly stirring to enhance texture and depth of flavour. The wine has 12g/l residual sugar, so is medium-dry, and shows refreshing yellow stone fruit, floral and steely, mineral aromas, with tropical fruits and flinty nuances.
