Growing Conditions

High trellising and intentional growth of moderate weed competition forces the vines at Curry Creek to grow upward and open up their fruiting zone. For a grape as notoriously muted as Pinot Gris, this results in far more exotic fruit characteristics in the finished wine.


An even harvest with several dry and sunny stretches that helped both for ripening and selecting harvest dates. The gradual cooling down of post-harvest into winter did occur slightly earlier than normal, around the third week of October as opposed to early November.


The fruit was destemmed and lightly crushed before receiving an active over-night cold soak. The grapes were pressed and sent to tank for a spontaneous fermentation. The wine was left on full lees for 8 months before being bottled.
