2023 Howard Vineyard Pinot Gris
Vineyard: Beautiful Valley Vineyard, Charleston
Elevation: 470-500 AMSL
Winemaking: Picked across 2 weeks from blocks K and L at the “Beautiful Valley Vineyard” in Charleston both on exceptionally cold mornings. Pressing the grapes quickly but gently using only the free run juice which we slowly ferment to show vineyard and individual block expression. The individual parcels are then blended to give more depth of flavour and characters to the wine.
Nose: Jumps out of the glass with aromas of a fresh bouquet of white spring flowers, a note of blueberry, pear and zesty lime.
Palate: Delicate aromatics of fresh pear and Granny Smith apple. Lemon, Lime zest and lychee round out this wine and compliment the dry, slightly textural finish.
2023 Howard Vineyard Pinot Gris serving suggestion: A delicious pairing with our free range roasted chicken breast with barley, kimchi romesco and Avugra.
