Description

"Using acacia oak this year has really accentuated the pretty summer fruit and floral characters we love from our Bannockburn Pinot Gris vineyards. The schist soils here are very fine and sandy, especially in the Cairnmuir Rd block and this presents as a mineral/spice note on the finish of this wine" Winemaker

Bright and clear with a pale golden hue. Lifted aromas of white peach, pear blossom and ginger spice. On the palate, ripe pears with nectarine and orange peel; and creamy texture which enhances the rich fruit flavours. A spine of fine, balanced acidity leads to a long mineral-infused finish. Well-structured with both the richness and poise that typifies Akarua Pinot Gris.

An exceptionally warm, dry spring and early summer gave winemakers an unusually high early season growth. Extraordinary summer heat brought the whole growing season forward culminating in their earliest harvest on March 1st. Late summer brought record high rainfall with relatively cool daytime temperatures. These cooler temperatures kept disease pressure in check and the fruit delivered to the winery by the vineyard crew was in excellent condition.
