Description

  • French oak
  • Spiced poached pear
  • Orange blossom
  • Juicy mouthfeel

"It's delicately fragrant on the nose showing green pear, nectarine and lemon peel aromas with a lovely floral overtone. The palate delivers excellent weight and roundness backed by juicy acidity, making it elegantly flavoursome and lingering. At its best: now to 2023" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Mar 2021

This Marlborough Pinot Gris is a light gold in colour with aromas of pear, orange blosson and subtle spices. Elegant and juicy on the palate with notes of poached pear, fresh apple and soft spices with a flavoursome dry finish.

The fruit was selected from vineyards in Marlborough's Wairau Valley and Southern Valley subregions.

The 2020 vintage was blessed with an abundance of sunshine and healthy growing conditions. Lower crop levels led to increased intensity of flavours within the grapes. Ripening steadily throughout the growing period, the fruit was continually monitored until the preferred balance of flavour and ripeness was achieved.

During a cool evening, the vineyard was machine harvested and the grapes quickly brought to the winery where they were destemmed and pressed. The free run juice was cold settled prior to fermentation in small stainless steel tanks. A small selection was fermented in seasoned oak barriques. After fermentation, the wine was left on light lees for three months to enhance and retain the varietal characteristics, prior to delicate blending. 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 aperatif, or paired with lightly spiced Thai cuisine.
