Momo Pinot Gris 2020
Varietal: Pinot Gris
Region: Marlborough, New Zealand
Appreciated by most Pinot Gris Organic Wine drinkers.
A classic, dry, new world Pinot Gris showing a vivacious nose with aromas of ripe pear and warm yellow fruits. The palate shows good natural balance with ripe fruit characters, great texture and acidity all coming together to create delicious Pinot Gris.
Blessed with a glorious, dry Summer, 2019 harvest commenced remarkably early, on March 1st. Vintage 2019 will be remembered as relatively trouble free, and a long harvest period – after the last few years when all varieties ripened at once, the slow, steady and spread out nature of 2019 was welcomed. Wet conditions at flowering gave us loose and lighter bunches, the following hot dry summer allowed berries to ripen considerably faster. Fruit was harvested an optimum maturity with the intention to maintain fresh and vibrant acidity to balance concentration of the fruit. We completed harvest on April 13th! All in all, we feel very grateful for all that Vintage 2019 delivered exceptional conditions and resulting fruit quality.
Certified organic grapes were harvested, de-stemmed then pressed and chilled to cold settle for 72 hours. The clear juice was then carefully racked into a stainless steel vessel (96% of the final blend). The vessel was largely inoculated with specialist yeast, Alba Fria. A small proportion was left to ferment in barrel (4%) to help build texture and natural balance into the wine. A long, cool fermentation proceeded, to enhance the bright, vivacious aromatics of Pinot Gris. After a short period on lees, the wine was stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
