This is an elegant and delicious style of Pinot Gris with aromas and flavours of baked
pear, honey, citrus and apricot. It is mouth-filling and complex, with a hint of
residual sugar perfectly balancing the acidity. It finishes long and dry
Vineyards and Winemaking
The fruit for this wine was grown on free draining gravel river terraces formed by the
Ngaruroro River. These inland sites at Maraekakaho and Mangatahi are blessed with
warm days and cool night-time temperatures ideal for the production of high quality
Pinot Gris. These vines now approaching 20 years of age are intensively managed in
the pursuit of quality.
The grapes were harvested in the morning while temperatures were cool and
processed as quickly and gently as possible to avoid colour and tannin pick up from
the pink Pinot Gris berries. The juice was settled bright before fermentation and then
post ferment the finished wine was left on its yeast lees with regular stirring until
blending and bottling in August 2022.
Very versatile. Can be enjoyed on its own or with soft cheeses, pork, chicken and seafood dishes.
