Description

  • Dry style
  • Poached pear
  • Vibrant fruit
  • Warming spices

"Fabulously elegant and appealing, the bouquet shows fresh pear, nectarine, apple and white floral notes, leading to a beautifully weighted palate that's fleshy and persistent. It's youthfully charming and immediately appealing. At its best: now to 2023" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Pale gold colour in the glass. Aromas of pear, quince paste and warming spices on the nose. Pure and elegant with notes of poached pear, soft spices with a flavoursome dry finish. The 2019 Pinot Gris has an elegant structure, with vibrant fruit notes, soft spices and a lengthy dry finish.

The fruit was sourced from vineyards in Marlborough's Lower Wairau Valley and the Omaka Valley regions.

The 2019 vintage started with cool spring weather, which extended the length of flowering, leading to open bunches with reduced potential disease pressure during early autumn rains. Lower crop levels led to increased intensity of flavours within the grapes. Ripening steadily throughout the growing period, this fruit was continually monitored until the right balance of flavour and physiological ripeness was attained.

During a cool evening, the vineyard was machine harvested and the grapes quickly transported to the winery where they were destemmed and pressed. The free run juice was cold settled prior to fermentation in small stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine was left on light lees for three months to enhance and retain the varietal characteristics, prior to delicate bottling. Minimal fining and handling before filtration and bottling ensures this Pinot Gris shows a true expression of the grape variety.

Food Pairing: An ideal wine as an aperitif, or paired with lightly spiced Thai cuisine.
