Rude Mechanicals Ephemera Vermentino Pinot Gris is a delicious blend of lively Vermentino with ripe and elegant Pinot Gris. A rich palate of pear and exotic fruits from the Pinot Gris lifted by tangy Vermentino citrus.
Produced by renowned winemaker Keith Tulloch, the Pinot Gris is sourced from Southern NSW where the climate is hot and dry. This variety holds its acidity well, achieving maximum ripeness with beautifully refreshing balance. Fully ripe at harvest, the fruit showed strong and fresh ‘Williams' pear perfumes with exotic hints of musk. Post-ferment, the wine was kept on yeast-lees with occasional battonage to add extra textural creaminess. This has generated a honeyed, velvety softness under the principal characters of pear and apple.
The Vermentino fruit is sourced from the upper reaches of the Hunter Valley. The hot and sunny continental climate is ideally suited to this late ripening variety, and low yielding vines generate a distinctive and lively fruit expression.Typical of this variety, it possesses bright characters of white peach plus lemon at the fore, plus elemental herb notes of fennel, and subtler textural notes of crushed almond. This variety’s savouriness and length are key elements to Ephemera’s blend magic.
