Previously produced as a blending component or glou-glou in-house refreshment, this layered Pinot Gris from the “smashable” Tropo range Secret Bottle favourites Unico Zelo is refreshing and shows classic Pinot Gris delicacy of colour and flavour, with some leafy funk from minimal-intervention UZ process and a lick of skin contact.
From The Winemaker
Textural white wines are something of a thing at Unico Zelo (ahem, Fiano?); so the opportunity to flex our muscles a little bit with the universally loved Pinot Gris proved too hard to resist. The big secret is that we've always made a little bit of Pinot Gris each vintage usually ending up in wines such as Tropo Pink Pet Nat or swilled avidly by our own team at long-lunches. Looking for flavour? Think nashi pear, nectarine with the slightest dose resh tomato leaf to provide a little savoury relief from any overt confection. This is built for long-sunsets, days by the beach or as an alternative knock-off after mowing the lawn!
We're aiming for utter drinkability via simple winemaking with this release, picking earlier for elevated natural acidity and a small amount of skin contact prior to an extended fermentation.
