Domain Road Defiance Pinot Gris 2022


We have run out of stock for this item.

Domain Road wines seem to have brightness and appeal which suit aromatic styles so well.

This PG is no different with bright aromatics followed by freshness and varietal appeal on the palate. 

Winestate: "Bright, light lemon/green, [this wine] is full bodied, very fresh and vibrant, with concentrated ripe peach, pear, lychee ad spice flavours, showing a distinct touch of complexity and an off-dry, very harmonious finish. A delicious mouthful, it's a drink now or cellaring proposition".

The fruit was hand harvested on 23rd & 25th Match 2022 from our Defiance Vineyard on Felton Road. The fruit was whole bunch pressed. The resulting juice was cold settled for two days before racking and inoculating with selected wine yeasts to undergo fermentation in a stainless steel tank (70%) and older oak barrels (30%). Fermentation was stopped to retain some residual sweetness.

The colour of pale lemon straw, with clear hues in the glass our Pinot Gris has a lush texture. Aromas of red apple, white peach, pear, white melon with a hint of citrus blossom are detected on the nose. This is followed by a lush, full entry of lemon curd, nashi pear, apricot and lemon zest. Excellent balance, with layers of complexity leading to a concentrated pear and citrus finish. Winery
