2022 Skinsy Pinot Gris
Grapefruit, guava, and blood orange zest come together with savoury texture on the palate.
From Faraday, about five mins down the road from our winery in Harcourt. Sandy granitic soils, grown at high elevation, around 475m, on the cool south side of Mt Alexander. A few locals have nicknamed the vineyard site Leanganook - this is the indigenous name for Mt Alexander. Three separate picks over seven days for different textural elements. All destemmed, and fermented on skins for an average of 10 days. 98% aged in old oak barrels, with a touch of Riesling added for freshness. All wild ferment, full malolactic fermentation in the spring, bottled unfiltered.
