Description

  • Dry style
  • Warm brioche
  • Ripe pear
  • Tangy citrus

"Bright and mellow, this tasty pinot gris shows apricot, fresh pear, floral and subtle spice characters on the nose. The palate is juicy and bright, delivering youthful fruit flavours and smooth texture, leading to a refreshing finish. Well priced and very easy to enjoy" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jun 2018

An elegant nose of  fragrant ripe pear, warm brioche and hints of cinnamon. Medium bodied with flavours of  fresh crisp braeburn apples and tangy citrus combined with a touch of spice. Mouth filling and smooth with lively acids, minerals and a rich waxy mouthfeel and dry finish that lingers.

The fruit for this Pinot Gris comes from a selection of vineyards, predominantly the unique Rapaura and Awatere Valley regions of Marlborough.. The grapes were carefully monitored during maturity to ensure they were harvested at the peak of flavour development and ripeness. Once at the winery, the fruit was pressed and cold settled. The juice was then fermented in stainless steel at cold temperatures to preserve purity of flavour.

Food Pairing: This Pinot Gris is terrific with seafood and pasta dishes.
