About the vintage
2022 was a bit challenging with some wet weather in the run up to picking, but we were nimble and got our grapes in in good condition! The resulting wines are well balanced with delicious, concentrated, ripe flavours and a touch of acidity on the finish.
The grapes were harvested in the cool of the morning and rushed to the winery. After gentle crushing, the juice undergoes fermentation in stainless steel tanks, using cultured yeast. The wine spends additional time in tank on lees with occasional stirring which adds complexity and weight.
What the wine is like
The Sisters Pinot Gris 2022 has a lifted nose of peach and pear. It is just off-dry and tastes of stone fruits complemented by a bit of spice and a fine balance of acidity. The texture is smooth and weighty, leaving a lasting impression which makes the wine very appealing with or without food.
When to enjoy
Anytime you and your friends are after a smooth, easy-drinking, enjoyable style of wine that tastes great with or without food. Serve chilled and just sit back and relax while enjoying those ripe, juicy, stone fruit characters.
Suggested food pairings
Delicious as a glass on its own, or lovely to accompany with all sorts of dishes from nibbles to pasta, Asian-style dishes, chicken and pork.
The technical bit
Alcohol 12%, RS 6g/l (‘RS’ stands for ‘residual sugar’ and is the natural grape sugars left after fermentation has finished. It is expressed as grams per litre).
