Catalina Sounds Pinot Gris 2017

NZW001028A

產地:
紐西蘭

產區:
Marlborough

葡萄品種:
Pinot Gris

釀造:
人手及機器採摘同時進行。而發酵過程則於兩種容器進行。90%於不鏽鋼桶內緩慢發酵,以保留香味。餘下10%則於法國木桶中發酵,令其出現較豐厚,較有質感的感覺。直至在六月下旬以前,所有批次的酒都不會加入硫,並連同酒渣一起浸泡,加強酒的濃厚感,芳香及結構強而有力而具條理。在六月初,酒液就會混合起來並預備裝瓶。

品酒筆記:
此酒保持了酒莊的“招牌風格”,有極吸引的桃果香氣,有香梨,紅蘋果及蜜蠟的香氣。入口豐富而有重量,又不會太過厚重,收結清新,集中而悠長。

配餐:
海鮮,夏日沙律,燒烤蔬菜及羊奶芝士

 

Country of Origin:

Winemaking
Hand-picked (4/4 & 11/4/17) and machine picked fruit (4/4/17) was used in the production of this wine. Two fermentation techniques were employed – 90% was fermented slowly with high solids juice in stainless steel tanks building weight whilst preserving aromatics. The balance 10% was fermented warm and fast in French oak puncheons building a richer, more textural componenet. All parcels sat unsulphured on heavy lees until late June, building savouriness, aromatic interest and a strong textural element into the wine. In early July, the components were blended and prepared for bottling (8/8/17). 

Tasting Note:
The wine retains its ‘house style’ with attractive stonefruit blossom, quince, pear, crunchy red apple and beeswax notes. The palate has richness and weight but is not heavy and fi nishes cleansing, focussed and long.

Food Match:
Lovely to drink on its own, it will also match beautifully with pork belly, quail or
other poultry, and Asian themed dishes.
