Urlar Pinot Gris

Rich, textured and dry Pinot Gris from Gladstone

An opulent dry styled wine with aromas of sweet pear, honeysuckle and stonefruit overlaying a generous mouth feel of great weight and depth. The creamy texture on the palate from the lees stirring provides the backbone to a long and lingering finish. An elegant wine with a beautiful balance that will reward cellaring up to five years. Great with pork dishes, especially a slow roasted pork belly or asian cuisine that is lightly spiced.

Harvest date april 2015

Ripeness at harvest 22.5 brix

alcohol 14% by vol

ph 3.3

total acidity 4.9g/l

residual sugar 1.6g/l

To preserve the delicate aromatics and fruit character of pinot gris the grapes were hand harvested in the cool of the early morning. Pressing was whole bunch with only the free run and lightest of pressings used to minimise unattractive phenolics. Traditional 100% barrel fermentation in old French oak with extended lees contact and stirring to give the wine mid palate weight, texture and complexity. After a period of 12 months in barrel the wine was fined using natural products and carefully filtered for bottling
