A cool spring saw lower fruit set than is typical. The summer of 2017 and the autumn harvest behaved with moderation and consistency, producing a steady ripening season that saw most fruit harvested by the end of March.

The lower than average crop harvested meant that 100% of the Ocean Eight Pinot gris was fermented and matured in French oak in 2017.

2017 Pinot gris is a lovely display of the Ocean Eight style, lean, bright & tight with acid at the finish. The palate shows balance between some fresh citrus intensity of tangerines and some ripe pears. A little ginger from the extended time on yeast lees complements the fruit nicely. Crisp acid finish is in evidence, and with time the wine should develop some oily texture associated with barrel made Pinot Gris.
