Chateau comme ci comme ca - 2020 Grise Rose

2020 Grise Rose

Pinot Gris
Adelaide Hills, SA 

"This fruit is from Robert Surmann’s farm just outside of Hahndorf. The vines are 25 years old and grown on black sandy soil which lays onto of petrified schist. I had two ferments of pinot gris going, one was in a barrel standing up with 100% destemmed fruit in it and another in aussie terracotta ;) which had 30% whole bunches and 70% destemmed fruit. I did however fill up both ferments with far too much fruit and after three days when the ferment started kicking hard both fermenters where about to overflow. So I racked off a 220L barrel of juice from both ferments to reduce the volume and avoid the overflow. This wine is that juice.

Tasting Note: Richard Gere pouring rose down your face - what a bloody treat!" – Aaron Fenwick
