The handpicked fruit is a mix of estate gris plus a portion from two nearby longtime growers, Pascoa and Chahal, in the Oliver area. It had a long, cool, 28 day stainless steel ferment, and the wine is aged on lees in stainless for 4 months before bottling. Free of oak, this is a fresh, zingy gris that leads with citrus and apricot, backed up by flinty minerality. A new colour coordinated package finished under screwcap makes this a sure summer bet on the patio. Fresh and dry, it is finally on the right track.
