Description

  • Dry style
  • Pear & apple
  • Pastry & crème brûlée
  • Barrel-fermented

"Some lightly chalky, stony aromas with sliced green pear, leading to a palate that has a smooth-honed and gently creamy texture with bright pear and pastry flavors" James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com, Nov 2020

Ginger, pear and Braeburn apple with white floral notes and cinnamon. Fullish and rich on entry with a very smooth progression through the palate to a warm, spicy finish. Fresh fruits, apple and pear, are joined by orange and peach with a crème brûlée note lingering.

From several vineyards positioned throughout Marlborough comes this rich, full bodied Pinot Gris which is partially barrel fermented - tank and barrel (+25% old oak). 5 hours skin contact & extended lees stirring pre & post ferment. 12% wild yeast, balance inoculated with various yeast and fermented at various temperatures (14-26°C)

Food Pairing: Works well with snapper fillets, rolled in fresh breadcrumbs and shallow fried, or with hot baked ham and glazed kumara.
