Description

Showcasing aromas of pear drop and fresh figs, leading to flavours of stone fruit. The palate shows a wonderful balance between fruit sweetness and acidity, with a refreshing finish.

It’s the little things in life that count and it’s the littlest sheep that help make Babydoll wines. These tiny sheep keep the Yealands vineyards tidy year round because they’re too small to reach the grapes. Using one of nature’s mowers means our wines are better for the environment and taste better too. These sustainable wines are pure and intense with plenty of character, just like the Babydoll sheep we named them after.

The growing season in Marlborough started out warm and dry, resulting in even flowering and ultimately balanced vines with the right amount of crop to get them through to harvest. The warm weather continued through Spring and Summer, with periodic rain which kept the vines hydrated throughout the growing season. These warmer conditions also meant harvest started around two weeks earlier than the previous year and resulted in Pinot Gris that is focused, with lifted aromatics and a beautiful concentrated mouthfeel.

Selected parcels of Pinot Gris were individually harvested, de-stemmed and then gently pressed. The juice was cold settled for 48 hours then racked prior to a long cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks to capture and enhance the fruit flavours. Following fermentation the wine was blended, stabilised, and then filtered prior to bottling.

Cellaring recommendation from winemakers is to enjoy now, or cellar up to 2 years.

Food Pairing: Ideal with Asian food, chicken or light pasta dishes.

Suitable for vegetarians, vegans and a gluten free diet.
