100% Pinot Gris from a selection of vineyards in the Wairau and Awatere Valleys of Marlborough.
Free-run juice was drained from the press and cold settled before a cool fermentation in stainless steel to retain the varietal aromas. A small portion was fermented in old oak and underwent malolactic fermentation in order to add complexity and texture. The parcels of wine were selected and blended, then stabilized and carefully prepared for bottling.
Aromas of freshly baked bread crust straight from the oven, and fragrant ripe pear. The palate is fresh and juicy with flavours of baked pear crumble. Finely structured with a rich, silky mouthfeel and a dry finish.
