Eden Road The Long Road Pinot Gris 2018
The Eden Road The Long Road Pinot Gris 2018 is a pink coloured variety and is typically made into a white wine. Eden Road allows a small amount of skin contact (20%) to encourage some colour but more importantly some texture from phenolics in their Pinot Gris. This wine is pale pink in colour. The nose has aromas of pear and strawberry. The palate is fresh, vibrant, and young with beautiful acidity, length, and texture.
Approximately 20% of the blend was fermented on skins for a period of 7 days with the balance being pressed lightly, settled and fermented in stainless steel with a selected aromatic yeast. The wine was left on fine lees for 4 months before fining, cold stabilisation, sterile filtration and bottling in August 2018.
The Eden Road estate and winery is located just south Murrumbateman – the jewel of the Canberra Wine District. (Interestingly, the Canberra Wine District is not actually located in the ACT, but in a district of NSW surrounding the ACT.)
Eden Road stretches across the incredible mountain ranges of Southern NSW. Our vineyard is in Murrumbateman, however we also utilise grapes from vineyards in ideal growing locations including Gundagai, Tumbarumba and the Hilltops region.
