The Eyrie Vineyards Original Vines Pinot Gris 2015

The Eyrie Vineyards Original Vines Pinot Gris is made from the first Pinot Gris vines planted in the New World, and receives special attention in order to pay homage to these extraordinary old vines. The desire to stay true to place and to limit their impact on nature educates all of Eyrie’s viticulture and winemaking practices. Insecticides, herbicides, or systemic chemicals have never been used in the vineyards and today all of the Eyrie Vineyard estate is certified organic. To best translate the flavours of the vineyard into the wines, the wine was fermented from the juice by wild yeasts. It was then aged in specially-made stainless steel barrels on the lees for a year. In addition, no sulphites have been added to the wine and Eyrie choose to retain the natural crystals that will form in the bottle when it is chilled. These crystals and the richness of long age help accent the natural expression of the grapes that came into the winery and also contribute to incredible ageing potential. The wine is light gold in colour, with crunchy apple and a touch of asian spice coming through on the front palate. A rich mid palate balances creamy ripe pear and floral tones, and leads to a lengthy, polished finish.
