Tasting Notes for Rock Ferry 3rd Rock Marlborough Pinot Gris 2018 from the Winery

A lovely aroma of freshly baked pears with vanilla custard welcomes you in to this wine. You are then met with a generous, plush and silky smooth palate that moves slowly to reveal subtle stone fruit characters. 

Viticulture

Our aim in the vineyard is to grow the best fruit we can so it can speak of its home and express its personality.   To do this you need healthy vines and soil. By practicing organics and incorporating some biodynamic principles we believe we are doing our best to help achieve this and let our vineyards evolve and speak as they would like.  
 
Winemaking

The wine is made with minimal intervention, machine harvested, using free run juice only. The wine is fermented with cultured yeast in stainless steel and with indigenous yeast in  2 seasoned old oak puncheons. The wine was then transferred to an oak cuve to mature on full ferment lees for 8 months.
