Vavasour Pinot Gris, Awatere Valley

Vavasour Pinot Gris, Awatere Valley

To ensure concentration and weight on the palate, the yields, at the Home vineyard from where the fruit is sourced, are kept quite low. About 15% of the juice is fermented in three-year old French oak barriques and undergoes five months of lees-stirring, adding richness and texture to the finished blend without sacrificing the delicate aromatics. Displays a richly structured palate featuring layers of ripe fruit, notes of ginger and the long mineral finish so typical of the Awatere Valley.
