Description

  • Off-dry style
  • Fresh florals
  • Ripe pear
  • Roasted almonds

This Cellar Selection Pinot Gris 2018 showcases fresh floral and spring blossom aromas with hints of clove and cinnamon. The palate has rich fruit flavours of ripe pear, nectarine and orange zest intermingled with roasted almonds. This wine offers a complex, creamy texture with delicate refreshing acidity on the finish.

The 2018 growing season started with an excellent spring and a strong flowering period which was followed by a long spell of hot weather with regular rainfall events through the summer months. With ample soil moisture, the harvest started earlier than the previous two vintages. Luckily the cooler autumn weather helped retain natural acidity as the season progressed. Despite the challenges in the season due to intermittent rainfall events, the Marlborough winery team are delighted with the quality and flavours of the wines this year.

The fruit for this wine is sourced from vineyards in both the Wairau and Awatere Valleys of Marlborough. Fruit is harvested in cool night temperatures to enhance aromatics, then fermented with aromatic and textural yeast strains. The wine matures on its yeast lees for a closely monitored period of time to develop a complex creamy texture, before blending, finishing and bottling whilst still youthful to enhance freshness.
