This wine has fresh aromas of elderflower and yellow roses. The palate has a luscious mouthfeel, with warm fruit flavours of lychee, citrus zest and nashi pears balancing the vibrant finish. A good match for pork and apple sauce, and an excellent foil for spicy Asian food.
4.5 Stars & 91 Points Sam Kim’s Wine Orbit
It is instantly appealing on the nose showing fresh pear, rockmelon, feijoa and floral notes. The palate is equally delightful, displaying lovely fruit intensity and rounded mouthfeel, beautifully complemented by subtle sweetness and refreshing acidity.

Highly Rated Raymond Chan
Bright, light straw-yellow colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is very fresh and bright with banana and confectionary-like fermentation esters, revealing white and yellow florals, pears and nuances of tropical fruits. The aromatics form a softly concentrated core. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has restrained flavours of florals and pear fruit along with bubble-gum fermentation esters. The flavours are rounded and along with the soft acidity form a gentle heart. The wine flows softly along a smooth palate line, leading to a light finish. This is a clean, medium-dry, rounded and smooth Pinot Gris with light floral and pear fruit lifted by fermentation esters. Serve with Middle Eastern fare over the next 2 years.

Fruit for this Pinot Gris is sourced from our vineyard in the northern Wairarapa. Care is taken in the vineyard to ensure the crops are not high and that the fruit is exposed so that it can ripen well.
The focus in the winery is to capture the pure fruit flavours that come from the vineyard, whilst adding complexity through our winemaking efforts to produce a multi-dimensional wine. This is achieved by tank fermenting the juice using yeasts that are able to ferment at low temperatures – preserving the essential fruit flavours.
