Spy Valley Pinot Gris 2006
Pinot Gris produces low yields of concentrated grapes on a stony riverbed terrace in our Marlborough vineyard. Grapes are gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks to give intense floral and fresh pear flavors. This wine is produced from very ripe grapes, with intense aromas and a rich, minerally, persistent palate.
After picking and pressing, the individual parcels were tank fermented at warm temperatures. At the end of fermentation the wines were aged on full fermentation lees for four months.
