About

Rock Ferry Trig Hill Pinot Gris

Rock Ferry put in a phenomenal amount in the vineyard for this wine. We hand harvest then ferment in a mixture of stainless steel tanks and older puncheons to build complexity. The wine is made with minimal intervention, hand harvested, whole bunch pressed, and only the free run juice is used – to achieve finesse and provide longevity to the wine.  They use a mixture of cultured yeast and wild yeast to impart nuances of flavours and the wine was matured on lees for 6 months to build texture and enhance the mouth feel.

Taste
Weight and texture on the palate shows the fruit quality and concentration from low cropping. The vines are also gaining some age and therefore becoming established in their home soil and the flavours and textures of the wine reflect this. Attractive Pinot Gris with fresh hay, apricot, pear and toasted nut flavours. A little bottle age has helped integrate the flavours and introduce a suggestion of bottle development.
