Located on the western banks of Tamar River, forty kilometres north of Launceston, choice blocks of the Kayena Vineyard are planted to unique clones of Pinot Gris. The site yields fruit of spectacular varietal definition, great purity and refreshing acidity, all are hallmarks of a truly profound cool climate wine. The weight and flavour intensity of this elite vineyard Pinot Gris make it suitable to serve with quite richly flavoured dishes, including veal, turkey or pork.
Employing the latest technology, but with more than a few concessions to the traditional techniques which have served winemakers for centuries, the goal is to harness the pristine fruit and fashion an individual style of wine that speaks boldly about a superior site. The exclusively estate grown, hand picked fruit is crushed and pressed without spending any time on skins. A small component is transferred to French oak for a course of rich barrel ferments. The majority is treated to controlled fermenters and vinified at low temperatures to a mix of wild and cultured yeasts. Upon completion, batches are held on sedimentery lees for two months to build fine textures and enhance palate weight.
TASTING NOTES
Bright, pale straw hue. Quite an aromatic nose with ripe pear fruit, touches of green herbs and hints of nuttiness and an intriguing allspice complexity. Excellent palate weight and structure. There is full, soft fruit flavours of ripe pear plus a level of nuttiness derived from time on yeast lees. The finish is clean and dry with good flavour persistence and just enough grip to add interest. innately suited to good cuisine.
