This is an opulent yet charming Pinot Gris from one of Marlborough's most historic wineries. Medium-gold in hue, it opens with delicate aromas of spiced apple, peach, cherry blossom and honeysuckle with saline streaks underneath. There's an ease and balance to the palate: texture, acidity and flavor all working together seamlessly. This Pinot Gris would be a happy companion to a broad array of cuisine, from Southeast Asian fare to cheese platter.

Product Description:

Fragrant lemon, red apple and stone-fruit aromas lead to quite a dry yet richly textured palate with fresh, bright fruit characters and a gentle acidity.

This is from our two adjacent Waihopai vineyards. The soils in these blocks are a mixture of clay, gravel and silts. The clays provide lovely mouthfeel and weight to this wine. The viticulture is quite intensive as we undertake shoot, bunch and colour thinning in order to ensure low crop levels, full ripening and concentrated flavours. 2019 was an outstanding vintage so we picked the grapes at perfect ripeness, with great flavour and in wonderful condition.
