Description

Two Rivers Brookby Hill Pinot Gris 2018


Two Rivers Pinot Gris has a lovely almond colour in the glass. The bouquet reveals dominant white peach and apricot aromas with decorative white floral notes. Textured and off-dry, complex toasted hazelnut nuances mingle with juicy fresh stone fruit and quince notes. A multi-layered and thought-provoking Pinot Gris that is opulent yet thirst quenching. It has a beautiful balance and great line of acidity.

100% Pinot Gris from 18 years-old vines grown in the Brookby Hill vineyard in the Southern Valleys. The clay soils from Brookby Hill provide great acidity and complex flavours to the wine. Cold air descends from the nearby Wither Hills to create a cooler, late ripening climate than that of the Wairu Valley.
Hand-picking the fruit off single cane, high density vines. Gentle pressing to retain freshness, fruit purity and varietal character. The wine goes through partial (10%) fermentation in French oak barrels and is kept on fine lees for 4 months to add granular mouthfeel and complexity to the palate.
