Pinot Gris Original Vines
Eyrie pioneered this variety in the New World, and the New World’s oldest vines contribute to this cuvée. They take a slow approach—their Pinot gris ages 3-4 times longer than most commercial versions, on its natural yeast lees and in the company of full malolactic. The result is textural suppleness to complement the acidity, and a surprising ability to age.
In addition, no sulphites have been added to the wine, and Eyrie choose to retain the natural crystals that will form in the bottle when it is chilled. These crystals and the richness of long age help accent the natural expression of the grapes and also contribute to incredible ageing potential.
The wine is light gold in color, with crunchy apple and a touch of Asian spice coming through on the front palate. A rich mid palate balances creamy ripe pear and floral tones, and leads to a lengthy, polished finish. Full-bodied, chewy, it’s a potent wine with an assortment of herb, citrus and tree fruit elements all in a pleasing tangle.
