Lis Neris “Lis” 2012

There are no fixed percentages of varietal for this blend; every vintage has a different balance point, and every balance has different premises.  The fruit is sourced in Jurosa and Gris vineyards.  It is a blend of Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, fermented in neutral oak casks and aged in the same vessel for 11 more months with frequent battonage to develop creamy, autolytic character.

This is the winery's pinnacle of production and defies varietal description.

"The 2012 Lis, a blend of Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, is a classic Lis Neris wine built on texture and layers of flavour. Nothing stands out, as all the elements are masterfully fused together. The 2012 is rich and intense, but never heavy, with Sauvignon most clearly felt in the aromatics, while the Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay come through most clearly in the wine's mid-palate. 2015 - 2018"
