White Wine Pack (3x Pk)
2017 Mantons Creek Pinot Gris
This wine is classic Alsatian style: soft, unctuous, full of pear flavours with aromas of blossoms and honey. Given the cool site, it still retains fabulous length and balance. The grapes were whole bunch pressed and barrel fermented to ensure a silky even texture. A short maturation then leads to a wine that is very fresh but will age well.
2017 Mantons Creek Chardonnay
This is our most concentrated and full bodied white wine and is the perfect illustration of how well suited Chardonnay is to our cool, slow ripening location. The nose has citrus and tropical fruits along with spicy notes from the oak. In this case, whole bunch pressing and wild fermentation in a combination of new and old French oak barrels adds to the character and complexity of the wine. Nine months maturation prior to bottling has led to full integration of these flavours. This wine will age very gracefully for those with the patience to wait!
From a cool site in a cool vintage, this Gewurztraminer has an explosion of lychees and spice on the nose. It is very round and mouth filling and the flavours carry on wonderfully. This wine is possibly the perfect partner for spicy Asian cuisine. It has been minimally fined to preserve its natural beauty.
