This Gapsted High Country Pinot Gris 2023 vintage is lively. With age worthy acidity that balances against the natural varietal fruit expression of Pinot Gris, this ripe and plush wine style. Quince and apricot flowers overlap ripe lemon, tangerine and honeysuckle aromas. The palate unveils rich and complex flavours of ripe pear, quince and mandarin complemented by mouth filling texture, a fine acid backbone and a long, impressive finish.

Winery & Vintage Info

The fruit for the 2023 Pinot Gris was picked in March at 12.9° baumé. We harvested the fruit during the night in cool temperatures so that the natural flavours and aromatics were preserved. The grapes were gently pressed and the juice settled prior to fermentation. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures to retain the bright, varietal aromatics. Extended ageing on fine yeast lees contributed extra depth and complexity while allowing the slow integration of the aromas and flavours and the palate to glide seamlessly and with great persistence.

The 2023 vintage will go down as not only one of the latest on record, but also one of the most challenging in recent memory. A third La Niña event in a row made for a much cooler and wetter spring followed by a cool summer and autumn with small rain events that certainly kept us on our toes. Whilst the weather made for some stressful and very busy periods, we were able to harvest everything at optimum ripeness and clean of disease. The below average crop levels coupled with a long slow ripening have produced wines that have intense aromatics, ripe flavours and all the hallmarks of age-worthiness. An excellent vintage.
