100% Pinot Gris from the Marlborough and Waipara regions.
Fruit was destemmed, crushed and pressed immediately to avoid extended skin contact. The naturally settled juice was racked clear and inoculated for ferment. The wine was fermented at cool temperatures to retain fruit purity before being stopped when the ideal acid and sugar balance was achieved. Stirred on lees for several months, then gently fined, filtered and bottled.
Aromas and flavours of spiced pear, quince and red apple lead into a soft textured palate which is balanced by a gentle dry finish.
