Konpira Maru, Pan Opticon 2021
Made from a blend of Riesling, Pinot Gris, and Gewurztraminer, a true field blend! This Riesling dominated blend was picked in the cool of night on the 26th of February 2021 and crushed and pressed as one, the wine was treated pretty simply and had early release written all over it from the juice stage. Pressed at 65% with no skin maceration apart from the transport from vineyard to winery. Once pressed it was cold settled, racked and then left to warm and undergo a natural ferment. Once through primary ferment it was sulphured immediately to avoid any MLF, settled again in stainless steel and racked once more. It then spent a month developing, at which point, after drinking copious amounts of the stuff the pair decided its freshness was too good not to bottle up. Racked once more and bottled into sexy retro blue riesling bottles under stelvin.
All the expected citrus notes with a tropical edge, along with fresh green pear. Great mid-weight Gris-like texture and super satisfyingly persistent acid line. Literally impossible to drink a bottle in more than 20 minutes (by yourself) excepting some sort of epic tantric mind control..
Please Note: Products may contain Sulphites
