2010 Pisa Range Estate Pinot Gris

2010 Pisa Range Estate Pinot Gris


The grapes are grown just a few metres from Pisa Range Estate by our neighbours –Thompson Vineyard located at Pisa 10km north of Cromwell Central Otago.  This is a ‘single vineyard’.

The 2010 season was excellent, with settled weather during flower set. A long warm autumn ensured the fruit was brought into the winery in excellent condition. The grapes were hand harvested on 15th of April 2010  - whole bunch pressed, and underwent stainless steel ferment.  The wine was aged on lees for 6 months -  fermented dry – 4gr/l residual sugar.
