Jealous Sisters Pinot Gris - Gladstone Vineyards (6 BOTTLE CASE)
This product is currently sold out.
Attractive balance between fleshy fruit, aromatics and delicate spice.
The grapes were grown at the Boyd, Dakins Road and Winery blocks. The vines are all trained with 2-cane VSP trellis systems that allow optimal ripening with sufficient sunlight penetration and air movement through the canopy. After several years of careful management these vines are now almost self regulating to ensure an optimal balance of crop size and perfect ripening. All the fruit was hand picked and processed with care to ensure maximum quality and site expression. The grapes were quickly pressed on arrival at the winery to retain fruit characteristics and quality. Gentle pressing was used to minimise maceration of the skins and minimise phenolic extraction. The juice was chilled to 5°C for 24 hours then racked off lees to remove any unwanted solids. The juice was fermented at 12°C to retain fruit purity and left on fermentation lees for three months to add palate weight and texture.
A lovely bouquet of yellow peach and nectarine opens up to a musky floral and cinnamon spice nose. The palate is rich and rounded with a soft mealy character from the extended lees contact and a distinct pithy tangerine zest. The juicy nectarine characters give the palate a real fleshiness that finishes on a subtle spicy note.
