Flat Roof Manor Pinot Grigio Case - 6 x 750ml

The flat roof manor screwcap range derives it's name from the 18th century townhouse at the winery, where winemaker Estelle Lourens is based. One of just three two-storied neoclassical houses in this style at the cape, it is thought to have been designed by the eminent architect Michel Thibault. It was completed in 1788. The label depicts the detailing of the flat-topped roof and features a cat that, according to local legend, stayed long after the original owners had moved on, to lap up the sun on the parapet. Uitkyk Estate comprises 600 ha with 140 ha under vines. Cultivars planted on the estate include Chardonnay, Semillon, Chenin Blanc, Viognier, Pinot Grigio, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Pinotage, Sangiovese, Mourvedre, Petit Verdot and Pinot Noir. During the 2012 vintage, 930 tons of grapes were harvested.

The Vineyards:
The grapes were sourced from three vineyards in the western cape, situated some 200 m to 260 m above sea level and facing in a north-westerly direction. The vines, between 3 and 30 years old, are grafted onto nematode resistant Richter 99 rootstocks and are grown in soils originating from decomposed granite. They are trellised and received supplementary irrigation during the growing season.

The Wine Making:
The grapes were harvested between 30 January and 8 February 2012 at 19.5 degrees to 23.4 degrees celsius balling. No skin contact was allowed and only the free-run juice was used. The fermentation was started with a pure yeast culture and concluded after 20 days. Thereafter the wine was left on the lees for a short period. Sauvignon Blanc (10%) and Chenin Blanc (4%) added to broaden the flavour profile of the wine. The wine was filtered and bottled in April 2012.

Wine Maker's Comments:
- Colour: Pale yellow with a hint of green
- Bouquet: Dried peach and apricot with a hint of litchi
- Taste: Intense fruit flavours carry through on the palate with the emphasis on peach, apricot and some litchi
- Ageing potential: This wine was created with fruitiness in mind, so enjoy it now and don't let it waste away in the cellar
- Food Pairing: Drink on it's own on a warm summer's day or with light salads and cold meats
