Wither Hills Wairau Valley at its best!- gorgeous scent and unctuous texture.
In complete contrast to the 2012 vintage, 2013 saw the region soaked with sunshine and warmth throughout the growing season, after a settled spring, which allowed for fabulous fruit set and healthy growing conditions. As the sunshine continued, ripening progressed at an even rate across the valley floor, so much so that many varieties and sub regions looked to have reached physiological ripeness at once! Two weeks of intense harvesting and work within the winery meant that fruit was captured in optimum condition. The resulting wines are showing intense fruit aromatics and seductive juicy palate weight.

Winery Tasting Notes
This 2013 Wither Hills Pinot Gris is intensely layered with aromas of honeysuckle, spicy apple strudel, Beurre Bosc pear, and orange blossom leaping from the glass, followed by subtle layers of gorgeous exotic rock melon, papaya, and guava and a dollop of cinnamon-infused mascarpone.
Dry in style, this refreshingly vibrant wine delivers a beautifully succulent mouth feel, balanced by a thread of refined spicy pear skin phenolics for a long and textural finish.
Perfect with a wide range of foods including seafood, cheese, pork & ham.
