Winemaking

Aroma: Preserved pear, mango and nougat. Ripe citrus is normally a signature of this block, and present at a more subtle level in 2017.
Palate: The balance is sweet with a long clean finish. Structurally light, the high concentration of ripe fruit flavours and residual sugar is offset with a degree of oak aging complexity and the exotic spice flavours from a late harvest date.
The Envoy Pinot Gris manages to show bright attractive fruit at release, and combine
that with the ability to gain complex nutty characters with further ageing. Behind the soft
sweet side is a structure that holds the ability age in the bottle with grace past 2025.

Vineyard

The 2017 growing season was kind with moderate well-spaced rainfall and good growing
conditions. The restricted crop off our Envoy block enjoyed an extended hang time, and
picked up a small percentage of noble rot after late season rain. Further ripening resulted
in shriveled berries with concentrated juice.
