About The Wine
Pinot Gris in its natural state here from young gun, Ricky Evans.
This wine took many months to put together. Two parcels of fruit came into the winery. One batch he treated much like his Pinot Noirs, with a week on skins and being pressed off to barrel before fully finishing its primary ferment. The other parcel sat on skins for seven months before being pressed off and blended with the other parcel. Skin-contact winemaking at extremes here from Ricky.
It's a cracking wine - bright, floral, and frisky is the order of the day.
