100% Pinot Gris from two vineyards in the Blind River sub-region of the Awatere Valley, Marlborough.
After harvest fruit was transported to the winery for immediate pressing, with minimal skin contact. Once settled the clear juice was cool fermented in stainless steel using an aromatic yeast. The two parcels were then blended and prepared for bottling.
Fragrant aromas of spice, pear and stonefruit with notes of brioche and freshly cut spring flowers. A medium-bodied and textural wine which shows flavours of ripe pear and white peach, with a touch of spicy nutmeg: characters synonymous with this sub-region. Beautifully ripe fruit flavours and silky with good palate weight. A succulent lingering finish.
