Muse Pinot Gris 2014

Drinking Guide

 

Drink 2015-2020

QTY

Into the wild, and away from the mainstream. Hand-picked and meticulously crafted, this wine is for those who like their gris interesting, and off the beaten-track. It offers complexity, by balancing varietal, wild yeast and French oak characters. Pear, dough, toffee, macadamia nuts, and a subtle hint of oak, form an elegant bouquet. As flavours, they deliver a viscous and textured palate, creamy from lees stirring. Expressive tannins and acid allow cellaring from the short-to-medium term. Pair with forest mushrooms and foraged herbs

Vintage Description
Technical Details

Tempering wild yeast against inoculated yeast has worked very well for many years now. I think it provides balance between fruit, spice, mineral and wild fermentation funkiness. As with all Muse wines, the emphasis when we blended the wine was not to achieve intense fruit but rather subtlety, complexity and texture. I consider this an excellent food wine, retaining the desired balance within five years of release. The fruit was left on the vine until flavour profiles showed an increase in perfume and floral characters and then hand-picked. Again, this season showed very low yields due to the poor fruit set experienced throughout Tasmania.
