2016 Holly's Garden Pinot Gris
Beautiful notes from the winemaker, Neil..: I have always relied on using lees and barrel fermentation, to bring middle palate complexity to a variety which, doesn’t display a great deal of overt fruitiness. I’ve also used oxidative juice handling and solids fermentation, with the view to bring complexity to the palate. The constant, has been the extraordinarily high natural acidity our fruit producers, due to the high elevation of the vineyard. Most of us recognise the vital importance of terroir that pinot noir demands – as a fickle variety, incredibly sensitive to soil, aspect and microclimate.
