"This Pinot Gris displays lovely delicate characteristics of ripe pears, red apple and hints of ginger spice uniquely derived from the growing conditions of the Waipara wine region. A mouth filling and textural wine with an excellent richness. Best enjoyed young" Winemaker

The warm, dry climate, high sunshine hours and long growing seasons in the region are perfectly suited to produce Pinot Gris with ripe flavours whilst retaining good natural acidity. Thornbury Pinot Gris has excellent richness, exhibiting vibrant florals of lychee and pears.

Fruit for this wine was sourced from the Waiata Vineyard located in the Waipara winegrowing region. Grown on the famous Glasnevin soils that are unique to this region.

The grapes were harvested over 2 days at the end of March at optimum ripeness then lightly pressed to tank. Cultured yeast strains and cool fermentation techniques in the tank have helped preserve these wines natural fruit flavours. Some residual sugar was left to balance the final blend. Post fermentation, the wine was left on yeast lees with occasional lees stirring to help build the desired texture and richness on the palate. Gentle fining and careful filtration followed before bottling.

Food Pairing: Seafood, white meats or Goats Cheese.

Outstanding Pinot Gris. I have always loved Sichel's Alsacian pinot Gris and having been a cellarman in the Savoy I have tried more than one edition of the asocial interpretation. This is nZ's closest yet. Such a difficult grape to get the right balances- this is almost as good as it gets.
