Overview

This Single-Vineyard wine is hand-harvested at Rapaura and fermented and matured on its yeast lees in old French oak puncheons. It is typically weighty and concentrated, with a slightly nutty complexity. The 2010 vintage (4.5*) is bone-dry, unusual for a Pinot Gris. Fleshy and rich, peachy and slightly spicy, with a smooth creamy texture, it shows excellent complexity.

Expert Reviews

This wine offers aromas of warm peaches and apple tart over nuances of backing bread, acacia honey and fennel seed. Medium bodied, rich and silken textured in the mouth, it's produced in a dry style with a crisp, balancing acidity and a long finish. Drinking now, it should remain fresh to 2014.

Rating 88 - Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW eRobertParker.com (NOV/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

This wine is a lovely example of the varietal. This Pinot Gris is full and round with ripe queen peaches, stewed pears in the mouth with a touch of toffees, cinnamon and spice. A grainy texture and soft nutty complexity showing notes of baked quinces and ripe pears. It has excellent length and weight.

Cellaring

This wine is very approachable whilst young but will gain complexity over the next five years.

With our team of passionate wine people we are highly committed to our land, our soils, our vines and our wines.

The ‘Golden Mile’ is the name given to a special strip of land in Marlborough located on the old riverbed soils in the sub region of Rapaura. This relatively small area of land has the most optimum wine growing conditions due to its unique microclimate. Some of the oldest and most famous Marlborough vineyards are planted in this area.

Staete Landt wines are 100% Estate grown, handcrafted from the 21 hectare (52 acres) Estate. We do not source fruit from other vineyards, nor do we sell grapes to other vineyards.
