Man O War Pinot Gris

The 2020 Estate Pinot Gris comes from one of the best vintages in memory coming off a settled Spring with good fruit set and warm to hot Summer and a very settled dry Autumn. 2019 saw impeccable fruit with little to no botrytis resulting in a wine of great purity and a classical structure. Aromas of citrus and pear with hints of cinnamon are balanced with a very linear low pH structure that is all about fresh crispness balanced by natural residual sugar.

Man O’ War Estate Pinot Gris is grown on a number of vineyards on both Ponui Island and Waiheke Island, all elevated hillside sides which are exposed to the cooling breezes coming off the Pacific ocean.

The Pinot Gris is all hand harvested and is must pumped to the press for a long slow press cycle into tank and fined for clarity. The juice is then racked clear and fermented cool with selected Riesling yeasts until the right balance of sugar, acid and tannin is tasted and at that point the fermentation is stopped by chilling to below zero. The wine is then held in the cellar at cold temperature to retain as much natural carbon dioxide left over from the fermentation as possible to provide a light spritz in the wine.
