Sourced from a range of Waipara vineyards in the South Island, this is an elegant, crisp style of Pinot Gris – the result of a cool climate. The palate shows soft white nectarine flavours and is balanced by lifted aromatics of pear and guava. This sumptuous sparkling wine adds a new element to the enjoyment of Pinot Gris and is complete with a fresh tropical finish.

Winery Tasting Notes
The wine shows a bright golden yellow colour with green olive hues and a fine-beaded mousse.
The nose is perfumed and characterised with aromas of tropical fruit.
The palate shows intense pear flavours and is full and textural with a crisp, refreshing finish.
Brancott Estate Sparkling Pinot Gris is designed for drinking upon release and is best enjoyed whilst the fruit flavours are fresh and vibrant. It can be served on its own as an aperitif but is also a perfect match for a wide range of dishes; from fish and seafood-based plates to chicken and pork stir fries and roasts.
