AVERILL CREEK SOMENOS PINOT GRIS

CA$44.75
Brimming with energy, texture and intensity. Lees ageing builds mid-palate density and salinity that counterbalances the fresh fruit and tactile acidity. The freshness and tightness is carried across the palate with a persistent, generous finish.
13%ABV
Estate-grown, using permaculture and dry farming, on glacially deposited stone and gravel, and sandy-loam soils. A warm vintage: the fruit comes from a well exposed part of the vineyard that consistently has more concentration and depth.

Winery
Fruit foot-stomped and left on skins overnight. Spontaneous fermentation carried out in mostly old oak barrels (85%), 1yr old barrels (10%) and new barrels (5%). Aged in original vessel for 18 months on primary lees without battonage.
