The grapes for this wine were grown in the Awatere and Wairau Valleys of Marlborough. Close attention to vine health and even fruit development were of particular focus.

The Kiwis have a better handle on pinot gris on the whole than their Aussie counterparts. This is a classic example from one of the country’s most reliable producers; it’s grapey, spicy, juicy, lovely.

A floral, pear-like style in which the aromatics faintly echo Alsace. The palate is nicely textured, long and balanced.
Winery Tasting Notes
This wine displays wonderful perfumed aromas of pineapple and ripe pear with hints of gentle spices.
It has a luscious palate showing generous baked apple and cinnamon characters, followed by a lively, rich and harmonious finish.
