Winery Tasting Notes

The Pinot Gris grapes come from a single vineyard in the Dartmoor Valley. The soil at the vineyard site is a mixture of free-draining gravels from the old riverbed, and calcareous soils from the surrounding limestone hills and river terraces. The grapes were harvested at peak maturity in April.

The fruit coming into the winery was clean and ripe, and most importantly, had excellent concentration of aromatics and flavours. 16% was aged in old French oak barrels for 5 months to add complexity and palate weight. The resultant wine is a stunning example of New Zealand Pinot Gris.

The nose displays tropical nuances of pear with hints of citrus and banana. The palate is deliciously sweet nectarine that runs into subtle citrus and pear. Well rounded and elegant, a wine to complement a wide variety of dishes
