2019 Pooley Pinot Grigio
80% whole bunch pressed . Cool, inoculated ferment on minimal solids. 20% destemmed and fermented on skins for 20 days with no pumping over just a gentle hand plunge every second day. Pressed off skins and assembled immediately with tank fermented portion. Maturation on fine lees for 4 months prior to bottling.
Aroma of nashi pear, spice, earth and persimmon. Palate is lush and generous but held firm through fine tannin and lacy acid backbone. Flavours of pear, apple and white flavours. Texture is its calling card.
