Description

  • Dry style
  • Gala apple
  • Roasted nuts
  • Lively acidity

"Beautifully fruited and fragrant, the bouquet shows poached pear, Gala apple, wet limestone and floral aromas, followed by a finely textured palate displaying excellent weight and textured mouthfeel, leading to a lengthy refined finish. Certified organic" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jan 2021

"Bright, moderate yellow with depth, slightly lighter edged. The nose is full and voluminous, nuances of flint, savoury bread crust melded with honeysuckle and stonefruit. Medium-full bodied, dry to taste, aromas of Nashi pear, apricots entwined with honeysuckle, fennel flower and a hint of flint. The mouthfeel is unctuous and flows with chalky phenolics; acidity is lively, draws a long line to finish. This elegant Pinot Gris possesses ripe fruit and lively acidity on a textural palate. Match with lemongrass fish and wontons over the next 3-4 years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, fermented to 13.5% alc, 1.5g/l RS, matured on lees for 12 months. BioGro organic certified" Candice Chow, Raymon Chan Reviews, Aug 2021

Generous aromas of Central Otago apricots, gentle hay and roasted nuts; the wine has an intensely concentrated flavoursome and silky palate and a lovely acidity, complemented by a savoury spiciness.

The wine is made with minimal internvention. Hand harvested, whole bunch pressed, and only the free run juice is used - to achieve finesse and provide longevity to the wine. We used a mixture of cultured yeast and wild yeast to impart nuances of flavours and the wine was matured on lees for 12 months to build texture and enhance the mouthfeel.
