Kooyong Beurrot Pinot Gris 2019

Our Price: $29.99 / bottle
(RRP $35.00)

Case: 6 bottles

With a faint bronze hue, the 2019 Beurrot Pinot Gris has an expressive nose of pear, quince, fresh hay and almonds. It combines a textured mid-palate with a fine phenolic edge that delivers flavours of red and green apples. The wine closes with orange citrus pith and a rosewater accented finish.

  • The Kooyong vineyard is located on the Mornington Peninsula at Tuerong, on Miocene sedimentary soils. Our wines are made from domain grown, handpicked grapes and aim to manifest terroir: the integration of our geology and soils with the macroclimate of our region, the mesoclimates of the various sites within our vineyard and the weather of the annual grape growing season. Our cultural operations in the vineyard and practices in the winery endeavour to articulate these unique characteristics diligently, respectfully and without artifice.

    Vineyard
    Beurrot comprises two Pinot Gris parcels: the tiny original 0.24 hectare section annexing the Meres block, and the all-Pinot Gris block which, at 2.74 hectares, provides the majority of the fruit. The large block is planted to a density of 5600 vines per hectare.

    Winemaking
    The grapes were gently whole-bunch pressed directly into all old French oak barriques, where fermentation commenced spontaneously with ambient yeasts. Following fermentation, the wine was aged on lees for ten months.. The wine was bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.

    Vintage
    Winter provided good average rainfall with approximately 200mm in total falling over June, July and August. Early September welcomed the beginning of budburst, leading to a cool Spring. Cool weather continued throughout the peak growing months of October, November and December. Spring rainfall was slightly below average but sufficient to ensure the vineyards were in good condition leading into Summer. January was warm, with temperatures exceeding the long-term average, and dry, with almost no rainfall. Veraison commenced mid-January as typical. February was cool providing relief to the vineyards and consolidating veraison across all our varieties. Harvest commenced late February. Warmer weather returned at the beginning of March and conditions remained very dry and moderately warm throughout the harvest period. The viticultural and winemaking teams worked with great tenacity, it was a compact vintage finishing in late March.
