Pacific Potion Pinot Gris (750ml)
Supernatural Wine Co. is a producer of certified organic, naturally vinified, low sulphur white and skin-fermented white wines from a north-facing hillside estate in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. Hayden Penny is the winemaker and viticulturist. The aim is to produce terroir driven wines with as little intervention as possible in the process.
Floral, pear and cinnamon aromas. The wine has a full and rich texture in the mouth with good weight and length. On the palate, note stone fruit and ginger and a subtle sweetness complimented by a minerally finish.
The use of indigenous yeast gathered from vineyards for fermentation and nothing but a little sulphur is added before bottling. The focus is on producing dry aromatic and skin-fermented white wines in a very clean and direct style.
Pacific Potion is organically farmed and vinified with minimal intervention. The philosophy relies on great terroir, a focus on purity, and old world farming and vinification. Grapes were hand-picked from the dry-farmed steepest slopes of the vineyard. Light soils and good drainage produce very high quality fruit gentle pressing. Settled overnight at 15°C before racking off heavy lees. Fermented with a variety of yeasts to build complexity and texture. Stirred on its lees for three months following ferment before being prepared for bottling with a minimal sulphur addition. Unfined.
