Description

  • Dry style
  • Green pear
  • White florals
  • Silky texture

"Its fabulously ripe and fragrant, showing rockmelon, green pear, lemon peel and white floral aromas on the nose, leading to a beautifully textured palate offering succulent fruit flavours combined with silky texture, making it delectable and instantly appealing. At its best: now to 2024" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2021

This is a wonderfully exotic wine with aromas of flowers, pear and melon. The palate has nectarine and tropical fruit richness which is balanced with a smooth refreshing finish.

Fruit for this wine was selected from mature vineyards in the North Island that consistently produce outstanding Pinot Gris grapes. The 2021 vintage has delivered exceptional quality with low yields and a temperate dry growing season producing clean ripe fruit with great flavor intensity.

The focus in the winery is to capture the pure fruit flavours that come in from the vineyard. The grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness then gently pressed and the juice fermented at cool temperatures with selected yeasts to enhance aromatic potential. After ferment the wine rested on lees to enhance mouthfeel before blending and preparation for early bottling.

Food Pairing: Great on its own this Pinot Gris is incredibly versatile with a variety of food, our favourites being chilled furry peach and red curry mussels.
