***SOLD OUT**** From Sundays - Juiced - Pinot Gris - Orange, NSW - 2016
This is the first in a series of 3 wines we made to show how diverse the world of wine can be if you think a little out of the box.
We picked some beautiful pinot gris from a high altitude vineyard in Orange. We then then made the wine in three different ways.
- This one is called "juiced" because thats basically all we did to it.
- The second one is called "carbonic" becuase we made it using a process called carbonic maceration and
- The last "skins" because it was made with full skin contact.
For those of you who don't know, Pinot Gris is a mutant of Pinot Noir and has a purple-y coloured skins so we were able to get 3 pretty different looking and tasting wines.
Juiced is in the style of a classic Alsatian Gris, textural, with loads of apple and honey. It's the one closest to a "normal" pinot gris.
All of the wines were made from hand picked grapes, went through spontaneous fermentation, and had no additions, no fining and with minimal filtration.
This is a picture of them when we were analysing them in the lab. You can see the crazy difference in their colours. Note, this is early in the process so the final wines look a little different.
