Winemaking Notes
Pinot Gris was first planted at Langi in the early 1990’s on a steep, east-facing slope. Grapes retains particularly high levels of natural acids at this location – a key contributor to the freshness, vibrancy and longevity of the Cliff Edge Pinot Gris style. This acidity provides a framework from which we can build great texture and character. Fermentation method: 100% whole bunched pressed to stainless steel tanks, racked off hard solids. 50% was put to French oak for 100%-barrel fermentation. Intermittent lees stirring post-fermentation then rested on lees until bottling. The 2018 vintage saw lower yields across our vineyards, the quality is high, with concentrated flavours and natural acid levels remaining elevated throughout the season. Our Pinot Gris continued to ripen nicely, holding acidity and freshness, harvesting took place on the 20th February.
