Brave New Wine - Ambergris 2021
Region: Great Southern
Grapes: Pinot Gris
Behold! Fully ripe Pinot Gris in its natural state!
Pinot Gris is actually a pink grape variety, but we usually see the wine made without any skin contact. However it is often more interesting with a little skin (or a lot), sometimes presenting as more of a light red or dark rose. In Italy they call this style Romato.
Smooth and soft with plenty of flavour. Notes of red apple and berries alongside spice and caramel. Finishes fresh with a light tannin. Works well with food as well.
Carbonic maceration, a few days stomping with feet, basket pressed, neutral oak for 6 months.
