2018 Sato Pinot Gris L'Atypique
Skin-contact/orange Pinot Gris. Very fine and chalky. Beautifully rich and rounded from the time spent in oak (without having imparted any oak flavour)... one of New Zealand's best examples of orange wine, without a doubt!
Fruit for this wine was sourced from the BioGro-certified organic TOSQ Vineyard at the foot of Mt Pisa, Central Otago. Soils here are loess over schist derived fine sandy loams with river gravels, schist and quartz. Harvested by hand, macerated on skins for 34 days before being pressed into aged French oak (0% new) for 20 months. Unfilterd, unfined (vegan). <20mg/L sulphites added at bottling.
