Jones Road Pinot Gris

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

If you are looking for pinot gris with a bit of oomph, look no further. This is a rich, ripe style that shows lots of apple crumble and poached pear smells on the nose with sniffs of honey. This all translates to the flavours on the palate that are lush and fleshy with friendly acidity, and a honeyed finish. No need to cellar any further, just get into it with some Thai food.

Winemaker's Notes

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 clean and fresh.

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. Watering was reduced post Christmas except when excessive temperatures were forcast.

A ripe and somewhat exotic bouquet of candied citrus, blanched almonds and a little spice; forward and rich, will best be consumed in the short term.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Just as the '10 Jr Jones is positively grigio, this is positively gris, with ripe pear and apple fruits, a legitimate touch of sweetness and the correct bottle shape (riesling).

Ripe candied fruits on the bouquet; good flavour and weight; a very user-friendly style.
