- ESTATE GROWN MARLBOROUGH PINOT GRIS
- VEGAN FRIENDLY & CERTIFIED ORGANIC
Aromas of ginger, pear and Braeburn apple with white floral notes and cinnamon. Fullish and rich on entry with a very smooth progression through the palate to a warm, spicy finish. Fresh fruits, apple and pear, are joined by orange and peach with a crème brûlée note lingering.
90 Point Rated – JamesSuckling.com Nov 2020
“Some lightly chalky, stony aromas with sliced green pear, leading to a palate that has a smooth-honed and gently creamy texture with bright pear and pastry flavors.”
92 Point Rated – Cameron Douglas MS, The Shout, March 2021
“Aromas of sweet brown pear and yellow apple, preserved lemon and a whisper of dried spice. White flowers, a whisper of lager beer lees autolysis and a wet stone mineral note add complexity. Crisp, fruity, varietal, refreshing and dry on the palate. Flavours of tree fruits and citrus mirror the nose. A coarse satin texture, nice weight and core of fruit finish the wine with aplomb.”
Fruit was harvested from our Echelon and Cowslip Valley vineyards in the Waihopai Valley and Headwaters vineyard in the Wairau. The fruit spent about 5 hours on skins to extract more flavour and build mouthfeel. While predominately tank fermented, a significant proportion is fermented in seasoned oak barrels to increase complexity.
