Jones Road Pinot Gris 2017 (12 x 750mL) Mornington Peninsula, VIC

Description:

Viticulture

Sourced from our vineyard further south on The Peninsula, these vines were spur pruned and shoot thinned to

24 shoots per vine on VSP. A reasonable canopy was maintained through summer as we intended these grapes more ‘hang-time’ for a more fruity, luscious Gris style . The vines were grown 'dry' to increase root activity & search for deeper tannins.

Vinification

The fruit was top-loaded to the press without crushing or destemming to avoid extraction of harsh phenolics or

flavours and then pressed gently to tank. It underwent a 24 hour settling before being racked for fermentation in

a combination of tank and older French oak barriques. Natural indigenous yeasts were allowed to commence

the ferment in the barrels, while selected yeasts were used for the tank fermentation. Some of the ferments

'stalled', which we decided to allow leaving some residual sugars.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

A rich and complex pinot gris with some savoury wild yeast and French oak complexity – it smells of citrus, spiced pear and apple fruits with freshly baked spiced bread and honeysuckle. The palate has a delicious core of concentrated pear and apple flavour in the middle palate, more spicy complexity here too, finishing soft,clean and fresh.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Frewer family established Jones Road vineyard in 1997 at Somerville on The Mornington Peninsula overlooking Westernport Bay. The maritime climate of this region produces some of Australia's best cool climate wines because of the late ripening, the fertile soil and careful vineyard management.

Since those early days we have secured lease on 2 other vineyards here on The Peninsula. One on the Port Phillip side, close to the water and the other at Balnarring near the Westernport Bay. This has increased our vineyards to 60 acres. With these extra parcels of fruit it gives the winemakers an opportunity to blend from the different sites, mixing different terroirs.

Matt, the vineyard manager has gained recognition for his attention to detail and care of his vines. This has lead to other vineyards requesting his advice and operational skills. He is now caring for another six vineyards on The Peninsula.
