Carrick Pinot Gris is grown at the home vineyard on Cairnmuir Road. Carrick believe that the elements of a good Pinot Gris is a perceived weight and texture on the palate. This wine was whole bunch pressed and fermented using wild yeast to foster complexity.
Regular stirring of the wine as it ferments and matures, keeps sediment in suspension which further encourages texture development. 60% of this wine was fermented in neutral French oak barrels, and aged on its lees for 6 months. A wonderful textural element on the palate that is reflective of an Alsatian style while retaining a clean acidity that is a hallmark of our windblown glacial soils on the Cairnmuir terraces in Bannockburn.
Subtle blossom aromas with flavours of white nectarine close to the stone are evident. A lovely structural white wine that sits nicely in the glass, perfect as a late afternoon aperitif.Pair with South East Asian cuisine and enjoy.
