Even Keel Pinot Gris 2019 - Mornington Peninsula
Closure: Screw cap
Bottle size: 750ml
This young and vibrant Pinot Gris has a floral nose with a hint of ginger spice. A layered wine with citrus fruit on the palate lingering on, to finish with crisp nashi pear to balance the richness.
The fruit is handpicked and whole bunched pressed using a gentle champagne press cycle. No enzymes or sulphur are used at the press tray and the juice is oxidatively handled to get rid of oxidative enzymes early on in the winemaking process. The wine is left at ambient and transferred to barrel with full solids, with minimal sulphur added. Fermentation occurs using wild yeast and it is then left unsulfured to the following summer at which time most of the wine has completed full malo-lactic fermentation .
A minimal amount of sulphur is added and left in barrel for a total of 6 months where it is racked off gross lees and transferred to tank. The resulting wine is bottled using no finings and minimal filtration.
An absolute cracker of a Pint Gris, we are big fans of Sam's woek here at Wine Experience.
Terrific vineyards, surf beaches and a close proximity to Melbourne mean the Mornington Peninsula is the perfect home for Polperro by Even Keel, and Sam Coverdale and his family.
Having grown up surfing the beaches of northern New South Wales and South East Queensland, Sam started out as a vintage cellar hand at Tyrrell’s at just 18 years of age, before completing degrees in Business from the University of Queensland and Wine Science at Charles Sturt University.
Sam joined Hardy’s, working across several Australian wine regions, then in Spain, Italy and France learning from the likes of Jean-Marc Lafage. Through this technical grounding and experience, Sam developed a strong sense of the wine he loves to drink and make – wine that plays to the strengths of particular regions and is true to the climatic conditions of each vintage.
He established Polperro by Even Keel in 2006 with a view to creating drinkable, balanced and elegant wines that continue to interest beyond the first glass.
