URLAR PINOT GRIS

16,95

Origin

Urlar, is the Gaelic word  for the Earth, was founded by Angus and Davina Thomson, originally from Scotland who moved to New Zealand with their young family to start a new life. Only biodynamic farming practices are used on the estate’s ancient soils to discover the purity of flavour that is inherent to the land. To preserve the delicate aromatics and fruit character of pinot gris the grapes were hand harvested in the cool of the early morning. Pressing was whole bunch with only the free run and lightest of pressings are used. Traditional 100% barrel fermentation in old French oak with extended lees contact and stirring to give the wine mid palate weight, texture and complexity. After a period of 12 months in barrel the wine was fined using natural products and carefully filtered for bottling.

Style

An opulent dry styled wine with aromas of sweet pear, honeysuckle and stone fruit overlaying a generous mouth feel of great weight and depth. The creamy texture on the palate from the lees stirring provides the backbone to a long and lingering finish. An elegant wine with a beautiful balance that will reward cellaring up to five years.

Food Pairing

Great with pork dishes, especially a slow roasted pork belly or asian cuisine that is lightly spiced.
