BE-Flight-Pinot-Gris-2018

Brancott Estate – Flight Song Pinot Grigio 2018

MARLBOROUGH

ALC/VOL: 9%

This fresh and fruit driven style may be enjoyed on its own or serve with a selection of canapes like goats cheese crostini and retro style creamy mushroom vol-au-vent. Richer fish dishes work well such as macadamia-crusted salmon or try with pork loin and braised fennel for a savoury, aromatic pairing.

Taste Profile:
The wine shows enticing aromas of white blossom and honey leading to a softly fruited palate of fresh pear and almond flavours. This incredibly moreish wine exhibits a lovely balance between fruit exuberance and floral aromatics on a mid-weight body, with pear notes carrying through to a clean finish.

Winemaking:
The fruit for this wine was harvested between 5th and 29th March 2018, from selected blocks pruned to encourage early flavour ripeness, at lower sugar levels. The fruit was gently bag pressed and the clear juice fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. No oak was used in the winemaking, as pure fruit expression was the goal, and the wine was blended to maintain varietal characters.
