Description

This Pinot Gris is filled with pear drop and fresh figs aromas, leading to flavours of ripe yellow stone fruit. The palate shows a wonderful balance between fruit sweetness and acidity, with a lingering and refreshing finish. Enjoy now, or cellar up to 2 years.

The 2019 growing season in Marlborough was a hot and dry one. Small amounts of rain received around the end of December, but then no further until late February. These rain events had very little impact on soil moisture levels, but helped to replenish the rivers, setting up nicely to see through to harvest. Vintage started in mid-March and it provided incredibly stable weather. This meant blocks could be picked at their optimal ripeness. The resulting Pinot Gris 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.

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

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

Suitable for vegetarians, vegans and a gluten free diet.
