Description

"Dry and quite textural pinot gris with apple, nashi pear and citrus flavours, together with a hint of bready yeast lees character. The wine has good purity and a silken-texture. A good food wine" Bob Campbell, Master Of Wine, Real Review 2018

Pale gold in the glass offering a nose of warm baked short crust pastry and ripe golden pear. Palate is textural and full bodied with rich flavours of golden pear crumble and warm spice. This wine has a lingering off-dry silky finish.

The fruit was sourced from a selection of vineyards in Marlborough’s Omaka and Wairau Valleys and harvested at optimum flavour ripeness. The free-run juice was drained from the press and cold settled before a cool fermentation in stainless steel to retain the varietal aromas. A small portion was fermented in old oak and underwent malolactic fermentation in order to add complexity and texture. The parcels of wine were selected by the winemakers and blended then stabilised and carefully prepared for bottling. Drinking well now, this wine will increase in complexity over at least the next three years.

Food Pairing: An ideal match with fresh fragrant Asian cuisine and also well matched with pork dishes.
