Garagiste Le Stagiaire Pinot Gris 2017
Made in a pure-fruited, medium bodied style that takes its inspiration from Burgundy rather than northern Italy or Alsace, this finely weighted Gris is drawn from a south-facing site in Merricks. The fruit was hand sorted in the vineyard and winery, then whole bunch pressed into to old barriques to ferment using indigenous yeasts. The wine only goes through partial malolactic, to preserve freshness and was matured on its lees in old neutral barrel for 6 months. No fan of the nondescript, structure-free Gris style that abounds, Barney's versions are well-defined and refreshing examples. Apple-tangy and creamy in the mouth, its charismatic flavours fall between the spiced apple/pear and stone fruit spectrum and the wine finishes with rippling citrus-laden dryness and notes of nutmeg and honey. Quality.
