December 2018

Golden straw in hue, the 2018 Beurrot Pinot Gris shows perfumed aromas of honey-tinged apple and pear skin, followed by lemon pith, rose petal and spice. The palate displays lively green apple and kaffir lime flavours and is delicately textured with zesty acidity and a savoury oatmeal finish.

Full golden straw. Quite intense and volumous – spicy old florals, stone fruit and kaffir lime. And this carries over on to the palate. Stone fruit, lemon butter, textural, rich and warming. There’s some light phenolic crunch, plus a racy citrus acidity to close. Definitely better with a few extra degree’s of temperature taken off.

The Vintage

Following a wet Winter, budburst commenced relatively late in mid September. The Winter rainfall set up the vineyards well for Spring with overall temperatures during Spring slightly higher than average accompanied by below average rainfall. Flowering commenced mid late November with ideal weather conditions, resulting in one of the best fruit sets in many years. The mild to warm conditions continued throughout Summer and veraison commenced in mid January. Harvest delivered fruitful crop loads matched with very stable weather conditions, ensuring vine performance and good ripeness. Picking commenced late February and the viticultural team worked steadily until the beginning of April delivering outstanding fruit. The white wines display excellent acidity, depth and intense fruit flavours. The red wines look poised and elegant with powerful aromatics and a great balance between tannin and acid.

The Vineyard

Beurrot comprises two Pinot Gris parcels: the tiny original 0.24 hectare section annexing the Meres block, and the all-Pinot Gris block which, at 2.74 hectares, provides the majority of the fruit. The large block is planted to a density of 5,600 vines per hectare.
The grapes were gently whole-bunch pressed directly into all-old French oak, where fermentation commenced spontaneously with ambient yeasts. Following fermentation, the wine was aged on lees (without battonage) for eight months. The wine was bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.
