"Off-dry Pinot Gris with appealingly pure pear, feijoa and subtle nutty flavours. The wine has an ethereal texture and moderately lengthy finish, with a hint of drying tannins" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Aug 2017

A pale gold colour in the glass with aromas of pear, baked apple, and sweet spices with a hint of flint and seasalt. Luscious and silky with layers of nectarine and spice, with a natural acid that is balanced by a hint of sweetness. Drinking beautifully now, this wine will continue to evolve and reward for at least three years from vintage date.

The fruit for this Mystery wine was sourced from a vineyard in the southern Omaka Valley. Destined for a tardive style with no botrytis influence, the fruit was carefully monitored during ripening and harvested in the cool of the evening at maximum flavour maturity and physiological ripeness. This is a warmer site with early budburst allowing a long ripening period well into late Autumn. Hang time increases the intensity and ripeness of the characteristic Pinot Gris aromas and gives richness and weight to the palate.

The fruit was crushed and pressed promptly at cool temperatures to extract the full complement of flavour, phenolic and aroma compounds required. Following the settling period the clear juice was racked taking with it a portion of the light fluffy lees, then fermented using selected yeast in stainless steel at moderately cool temperatures to retain fruit flavour and freshness. The fermentation was arrested early to retain some residual sugar, to balance the acidity and add richness.

Food Pairing: An ideal match with soft ripened cheese or crayfish.
