Pale straw. Spicy red apple and pear. Juicy and lively palate with a structural backbone and lingering finish. The wine was blended and lightly fined in June, then bottled in early July.The settled weather meant good flowering and growing conditions, while the warm South Island summer ripened fruit beautifully. These excellent conditions continued throughout harvest and at the time of picking, the fruit was in optimal condition, resulting in Pinot Gris with great flavour and integrity.
This wine was sourced from selected vineyards from Marlborough and the Waipara Valley, cool climate wine growing regions in New Zealand’s South Island. Our Marlborough vineyards are situated on moderately fertile glacial soils. This includes a mix of sandy loam over very deep gravels; fertile loams and clays. In Waipara, gravelly loams over alluvial subsoil offer minerality and structure. Once harvested, the grapes were gently pressed and settled in tank. The warm fermentation started with a handful of selected yeast strains. To add complexity and texture; a portion of the wine was fermented in old French oak barriques. After the completion of fermentation the wine was left to relax on light yeast lees to enhance structure and mouth feel.
