Coombe Farms Pinot Gris 2015
This is a dry white table wine with ripe tropical fruit, rose petal and spicy aromas, a deliciously fresh and crunchy palate and a savoury finish. It is excellent food accompaniment.
2015 was an ideal vintage in the Yarra Valley with warm days and cool nights throughout the ripening period, ensuring perfect fruit ripeness with lovely fresh acidity – bright, crunchy, tasty wines!
Coombe Farm Pinot Gris is grown on our north facing, hillside block. It is a warm site with fabulous breezy ventilation, ensuring full ripeness and fresh acidity, even in the warmest years. The 2015 Coombe Farm Pinot Gris was hand-harvested in three batches, several days apart, to capture a broader range of varietal flavours.
The majority of the free-run juice was fermented in stainless steel to maximize the delicate fruit characters, with approximately 10% of the free-run and pressings fraction fermented in large, old oak barrels to add texture and complexity. The wine is fermented to dryness using a fruity, aromatic yeast.
