100% Pinot Gris from the Home Vineyard dating back to 1990; these are some of the oldest Pinot Gris vines in Marlborough.
Fruit was harvested in the cool hours of the morning, then gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel vats. A small parcel was fermented and aged in older French oak to add texture and palate weight. After blending the wine was left to settle before bottling.
The pure age of these vines give the wine texture and palate weight. It is rich, floral and fleshy with mouth-filling pear, crisp apple and spice flavours.
