Description

  • Dry style
  • Poached pear
  • Subtle spice
  • Elegant finish

This Pinot Gris is flourishing with notes of poached pear, fig and honeydew melon, and buzzing with flavours of stone fruit with subtle spices. The palate is beautifully rich and wonderfully balanced with a fresh lingering finish.

Along the length of the North and South Islands, the cool clear waters of the Pacific Ocean carve deep natural coves into the landscape. Intriguing for its unrivalled tranquillity, this spectacular eastern coastline of New Zealand is also renowned for its exceptional wines. In these beautiful, but harsh, conditions the vines struggle for survival, producing low yields of high quality fruit with concentrated flavours.

They were incredibly lucky to be able to continue to create these wines during the global pandemic crisis. For this reason, the 2020 wines carry some very unique memories. The 2020 growing season was very dry, which meant disease pressure was low and some timely light rains kept just enough water flowing in their rivers. They had a classic Marlborough autumn with warm days and cool nights, which created this season’s Sauvignon Blanc with signature fresh natural acidity and intense fruit flavours. They had fairly stable weather during Sauvignon Blanc flowering, with a small amount of rain affecting some of the later flowering areas, resulting in lighter crops and intense flavours.

The Pinot Gris produced from this vintage has concentrated fruit flavours, with a vibrant pure palate and an elegant fresh finish.

Select parcels of Pinot Gris were individually harvested, de- stemmed and 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 of pear, fig and stone fruit. Each parcel was fermented separately using a range of selected yeasts. Following fermentation the wine was blended, stabilised, and then filtered prior to bottling.

Food Pairing: Enjoy with Asian food, chicken & light pasta dishes.

Lives up to the label with the pear, peach and lemon characters. Nice and crisp. Very drinkable.
