100% Pinot Gris sourced from two vineyards; Tinpot Hut's Home Block in the Blind River sub-region of the Awatere Valley, and another select vineyard in the Omaka Valley.
Fruit was transported to the winery for immediate pressing, with minimal skin contact to prevent juice deterioration. Once settled, the clear juice was cool fermented in stainless steel using an aromatic yeast to tease out the delicate flavours, and to retain the fresh fruit characteristics and underlying spicy notes.
Fragrant aromas of spice, pear and stonefruit mix with notes of brioche and freshly cut spring flowers. This is a light-to-medium bodied wine which shows flavours of fresh pear and white peach, with a touch of spicy nutmeg. Well balanced and clean with good palate weight.
