Description

"Brilliantly priced, this gorgeous pinot gris shows ripe peach, poached pear, lemon peel and floral aromas on the nose with a hint of spicy complexity. The palate is succulent and beautifully weighted, backed by bright fruit intensity and refreshing acidity. It is smooth and vibrant at the same time, offering fabulous drinking. Style: Off-dry. At its best: now to 2019" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2018

A delicious full-bodied Pinot Gris with appealing aromas of fragrant ripe pear and warm baked short crust pastry.  The palate is textural and full bodied with rich flavours of golden pear crumble and a light touch of spice. A long lingering finish showing classical elegance and finely balanced acidity.

This wine was produced with fruit from select Marlborough vineyards. Harvested in the cool of the evening to maintain fresh fruit flavours. A small portion was fermented in seasoned oak and underwent malolactic fermentation in order to add complexity and texture.   Drinking well now, this wine will increase in complexity over at least the next three years.  

Food Pairing: Beautifully matched with pumpkin risotto or Thai cuisine.
