Season

Season

2024 delivered a cool, even growing season that yielded wines with intense yet delicate flavours and vibrant colours. February and March saw an absence of rainfall, coupled with low crop yields and warmer temperatures, which led to an unusually fast-paced harvest. Perfect autumn weather, allowed us to complete the harvest by mid-April, a full month ahead of the 2023 harvest.

Vinification

Vinification

Style-wise, The Lane 2023 Gris sits on the cusp between Grigio and Gris. Combines the two vinous personalities – Grigio’s green apple, lemony crunch and crispness with Gris-like pear and spice. Fermentation took place in stainless steel vats and was followed by time in oak. It contributes some discreet and attractive textural properties to the wine which is noted for its youthful acid drive. Super fresh to taste with good depth of fruit in Nashi pear, apple, lemon and a whisper of spring-like honeysuckle and clean spice. While on the crisper side for a Gris, it can actually open up more food matching possibilities especially when it comes to seafood.

- Jeni Port, Wine Pilot

Lifted notes of pear drops and mandarins make way for a cushioned core. This offers texture and a feeling of lightness on the savoury core, which beckons you back for a second glasses.
