Description

A delicate, pale straw gold in the glass. An aromatic, perfumed nose delivers fruit aromas of nashi pear, honeysuckle and quince. Fermentation esters and a delightful spicy note further enhance the fruitiness of this aromatic wine. The palate is full with ripe fruit flavours delightfully counter balanced by a soft phenolic structure that provides perfect balance for the residual sugar left in the wine from fermentation. Apple, custard and quince flavours complexed with a touch of ginger provide a great combination of tastes that linger on the palate well after the wine has gone.

The 2017 Vintage in the Upper Wairau was typified by warm daytime temperatures, tempered by cool nights. These provided the ideal conditions for creating varietal flavours while retaining fine acidity and elegance in the wines. Harvest commenced the third week of April just prior to the late season rainfalls in the area. The fruit was harvested at maximum flavour as assessed through frequent tasting in the vineyard by our winemaker - for Pinot Gris this occurs late in the ripening process. It was very gently pressed to avoid harsh phenolic extraction and the juice allowed to cold settle. The clear juice was fermented at low temperatures using yeast renowned for their ability to enhance the Pinot Gris aromas. A balanced amount of residual sugar was left in the wine to complement the palate weight and structure.  Peak drinking for this wine will be between 2017-19 but it will continue to develop for a further 5 years

Food Pairing: Lightly spiced Asian food. We suggest a chicken curry with a coconut cream sauce or crispy Thai pork and vegetables rolls
