2011 Le Gris de Noir
750ml | Alcohol: 12.5%
Wine score: 93 points, The Wine Front.
Our no-skin-contact 2011 Le Gris de Noir – which we pressed and then put straight into barrel – is neither rosé, white nor red, but rather a light peachy copper colour. Light bodied, it has a creamy yet zesty finish of excellent length.
Picked from 10 south-east facing rows of vines directly behind our homestead, the bunches were shaded from the afternoon hot sun, yielding Pinot Noir fruit with high acidity and billowing floral and musk aromatics. This wine will age brilliantly.
Made from 100% Whisson Lake estate-grown Pinot Noir.
No additives, aside from a small amount of sulfur added just before bottling.
