Scorpo Pinsanto Late Harvest Pinot Gris 2018
Region: Merricks North, Victoria
The fruit is allowed to ripen well into autumn so that the flavours can reach their richest potential, and have attained full aromatics. We pick when all the elements, including the acid are in balance. Harvest date varies. The fruit is whole bunch pressed to tank, allowed to settle, coarse solids removed, inoculated with cultured yeast and once the ferment had started, transferred to four years and older barriques for maturation on lees over 8 months. It is bottled between 9 and 12 months later.
