Mount Brown Pinot Gris 2013

Aroma and Taste

A very fruit driven style, with lovely ripe pear and peach flavours. Some subtle quince and spice notes add to the complexity.

Some residual sugar (7g) results in a medium-full palate with great texture and a touch of sweetness.

Accolades

  • Silver: New Zealand International Wine Awards

Two parcels of fruit were machine harvested, the first in early April and the second three weeks later. They were separately pressed to tank and cold-settled. Clear juice was racked off and then inoculated with selected yeast strains. Fermentation was in stainless steel with cooling control for a fruit driven style. The first parcel was fermented to near dryness and with the second parcel, fermentation was stopped early to leave some residual sugar. The wine spent four months on yeast lees before blending.

The depth of flavour make it a very versatile wine to enjoy with just about any food. It’s ideal with roasted white meats such as pork or chicken as well as stir-fried food as the moderate acidity offsets any oiliness. The slight residual sugar means that it will go well with food that has a touch of sweetness, such as sweet and sour pork. It would also work well with goats cheese. An ideal match would be pork and vegetable spring rolls with sweet plum dipping sauce.
