Mount Brown Estates Pinot Gris 2015

Perfect growing conditions in the valley produced this multi-award winning Pinot Gris.

Aroma and Taste

Upfront fruit with lovely pear and peach flavours. Some subtle quince and spice notes add to the complexity.  Some residual sugar (6g) results in a medium-full palate with great texture..

Viticultural Practises

The vines are on well-drained sandy gravels on a warm site. They were hand-thinned to reduce the crop-load to under 3kg a vine and enhance depth of flavour. The grapes were harvested in April over a period of three weeks.

Wine making details

A parcel of wine was barrel fermented and the balance in stainless steel with cooling control for a fruit driven style and stopped early to leave some residual sugar (7g RS). They were then blended together shortly before bottling.

Food and Wine Matching

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.
