Craven Newlands Pinot Gris 2020

Craven Newlands Pinot Gris 2020

In the words of Mick & Jeanine Craven:
“Pinot Gris is something we have a lot of fun working with. Although a lot of the wine drinking world think and assume it is a ‘white grape’, it is in fact a lovely coppery/dark rose skinned grape. With this being the case, we just can’t waste that colour and delicious flavour trapped in the skins, so we ferment this wine like a red. In 2020 we destemmed the fruit in its entirety and fermented it in open top fermenters. The fermentation on skins gives the wine a beautiful rose coloured hue. We found due a slightly higher yield the tannins were lovely and refined which enabled us to keep the wine on skins for 8 days before pressing in 2020.”
