Affectionately know as GEE GEE, this 2021 skin contact organic pinot gris and gewürztraminer has been incubated as naturally as possible. This is the third adventurer in our See Saw Incubator series. If you love it, why not try SAMM or MARGE too?
Winemaking | Selected from our organically certified Pinot Gris from Annangrove Park AP2 at 700m, and our Gewürztraminer from Balmoral B1 at 900m. The Pinot Gris was hand-picked on the 12th of February from 6.30am. The Gewürztraminer was hand-picked on the 6th of March. Placed into slotted half tonne bins and taken directly to the winery these whole bunches were then moved into open fermenters. Wild fermentation started while the grapes were fully intact. After 18 days the carbonic maceration was finished and the fruit was gently pressed into stainless steel tanks where Lees were stirred through fortnightly for 3 months to increase the mouthfeel. The wine was passed through a rock filter prior to bottling.
