The Pinot Gris grape produces dark blue grapes when ripened at the end of October and needs to ripen well for the wine to develop its fine aroma and spicy flavour. Probably defined as medium dry.
At the pressing stage we allow the skins to remain in the juice overnight and the wine takes on a ‘blush’ colour.
The wine is delicately lively with a fruity zest.
