Ata Rangi Lismore Pinot Gris 2017

100% Pinot Gris from Ata Rangi's Lismore Vineyard at the edge of the Martinborough Terrace. The vines are now 22 years old with roots that have driven metres deep into the gravels, and consistently deliver grapes with heightened texture and flavour. 

Fruit was hand-picked and whole bunch pressed with the juice cold settled. A combination of inoculated and natural ferments in small stainless tanks and 500 litre oak puncheons; in both cases left on lees for several months. No malolactic fermentation. 

Winemaker's Comments

Up-front aromas evoke fresh cut pear, custard, pecans and lychees. The palate offers a creamy entry, with concentration and texture, and a long, dry finish imbued with flavours of fresh walnut and a hint of smoke. With just a few grams of residual sugar, this is a delicious stand-alone aperitif, although also an excellent food matching choice, especially for anything with heady spice and bold flavours.
