Description

  • Dry style
  • Spiced pear
  • Juicy acidity
  • Crisp finish

"A wine of purity and fabulous fruit intensity, showing poached pear, nectarine, Gala apple and white floral aromas on the nose. The palate offers focus, concentration and flow, combined with fleshy texture and bright acidity, finishing impressively long and satisfying. Supremely elegant and poised. At its best: now to 2026" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Dec 2020

Golden straw colour with perfumes of fresh pear and crisp red apple providing texture and juicy acidity, complemented by a hint of spice. A full bodied Pinot Gris with an opulent texture. The generous fruit flavours of pear and apple add a touch of juicy acidity and provide a dry, crisp finish.

This single vineyard Pinot Gris is sourced from The Home Block Vineyard in the Waipara Valley. The vineyard was established in 2002 on terraced gravels that offer little fertility which, along with Waipara’s long, cool growing season, provide perfect conditions for growing world class cool climate Pinot Gris.

Waipara experienced a good growing season, with warm early summer weather optimal for flowering. Hot, sunny days provided ideal conditions for ripening fruit. By the time fruit was ready for harvest, it was in pristine condition, with concentrated varietal character. 

The grapes were hand picked at optimal flavour ripeness, gently pressed and settled to tank. The wine was then fermented with a handful of selected yeast strains. A portion was fermented in old French oak barrels resulting in complexity and structure. The wine was then left to mature on gross yeast lees to enhance structure and mouthfeel. The wine was then fined, filtered and bottled on 22 July, 2020.

Food Pairing: Blue cheese souffle with a spinach, pear and walnut salad.
