Errazuriz /  2015 Single Vineyard Pinot Gris

This Product is Temporarily Out of stock.

COUNTRY/REGION: Chile/Casablanca Valley.

GRAPES: 100% Pinot Gris.

ABV: 13.5%

WINEMAKER NOTES: Grapes were hand picked in the early morning and carefully transported to the winery, where they are destemmed, crushed and pressed to best preserve their natural acidity. Juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged on the lees for 3 months ensuring multilayers of aromas and flavours.

VINEYARDS: The grapes for our Pinot Gris come from the Manzanar vineyard, located barely 7.5 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Planted by Errazuriz in 2005 and in 2009, the soil is thin layer of loamy texture and placed on a base of clay and metamorphic rock (slate/schist), providing the mineral notes present in the wines that are grown in these vineyards.

VINTAGE: Warm temperatures in spring and lower than average rainfall resulted in an early start to this challenging yet balanced 2015 vintage. The conditions produced an early harvest, with overall small to normal berry sizes giving excellent flavour concentration and structure to the wine.

WINE MAKING: Grapes were hand picked in the early morning and carefully transported to the winery, where they are destemmed, crushed and pressed to best preserve their natural acidity. Juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged on the lees for 3 months ensuring multilayers of aromas and flavours.

TASTING NOTES: This Pinot Gris hails from the cool-climate Manzanar vineyard just 8 miles from the coast, benefiting from the cool ocean breezes of the Pacific. It balances zesty crispiness with a hint of minerality. Rich and polished, with a seamless aftertaste.
