Mt. Difficulty 2012 Bannockburn, Mansons Farm, Late Harvest Pinot Gris

Sweet late harvest wine. Made in a late harvest style with residual sugar of 104gL-1, this rich & unctuous wine displays bold citrus and stone fruit aromas. These same fruits explode on the palate with unrestrained enthusiasm, continuing right through the palate. The residual sugar helps to bring richness and balance to the wine without being cloying. This wine will age well, developing some delicious oiliness over time. Mansons Farm Pinot Gris will improve for 5-8 years given optimal vintage and cellaring conditions.
