Stanners Vineyard - 2021 Pinot Gris Cuivré
This wine has a beautiful copper colour (“cuivré”) due to the colour of the grape skins which are left in contact with the juice for 72 hours prior to pressing and starting fermentation. The technique results in a wine with added complexity and a touch of tannins. It’s a wine style that dates back hundreds of years, but is now not very common. However, this is our favourite way of making Pinot Gris!
This 2021 version was made using grapes from our estate vineyard, the Devil’s Wishbone vineyard and Lighthall’s South Bay vineyard, all in Prince Edward County. It has very appealing aromas and flavours of apricot and mandarin orange along with a balanced acidity leading to a satisfying lightly tannic finish.
