The Pinot Grigio is picked fairly early in the ripening process in order to encourage citrus flavours and acid balance. The grapes are picked at night so they come to the winery cold. The grapes for the 2013 Pinot Grigio were picked between August 8 - 17 with an average Brix of 22.2 Deg. After a gentle crush, the resulting must was immediately pressed and chilled. After crushing, the must is pressed immediately and the wine is cold fermented in stainless steel until dry.
Minimal Sulphur, Negligible Nitrogen, Minute Residual Sugar, Cold Climate, Picked Early, Refined to Perfection. "All these things add up to something quite outstanding".
Light straw in colour the 2013 Pinot Grigio from McManis Family Vineyards is a nose full of citrus scents. Lemon, Lime and Grapefruit are all present. While the wine is crisp, there is a noticeable weight to it. The flavours anticipated by the olfactory senses are abundantly delivered. The finish has a hint of mineral character.
