Description

  • Dry style
  • Poached pear
  • Stonefruit
  • Refreshing finish

This Pinot Gris is abundant ripe yellow peach, nectarine, young apricots and poached pear. The palate shows a wonderful balance between fruit sweetness and acidity, with a lingering and refreshing finish.

This is the earliest harvest on record since our inception. There were late spring frosts in Marlborough and some challenging weather over the flowering period, which resulted in moderate crops throughout the region. These moderate crops, coupled with a warm and stable end to the growing season, set us up for an early start with stunning fruit. They had clear warm days throughout March, so they could pick at their leisure, without any pressure from the elements. The resulting Pinot Gris is focused, with lifted aromatics and a beautiful concentrated mouthfeel.

Selected parcels of Pinot Gris were individually harvested, de-stemmed and then gently pressed. The juice was cold settled for 48 hours then acked prior to a long cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks to capture and enhance the fruit flavours. Following fermentation the wine was blended, stabilised, and then filtered prior to bottling.

Food Pairing: Ideal with Asian food, chicken or light pasta dishes.
