The grapes were hand picked per clone at their optimum flavour, which often occurs at a later maturity-stage. The grapes are loaded directly to the press and gently whole bunch pressed. The resultant juice was settled for twelve hours and racked taking a small proportion of solids into old French oak barrels and puncheons (double sized barrels) for fermentation. This was carried out with a mixture of wild fermentations and cultures yeasts.

A portion of the wine (20%) was left to naturally go through malo-lactic fermentation to enhance texture and complexity. The wine was then left to mature on very light lees for nine months. The wine was subsequently racked and settled again prior to a light filtration and bottling.

Expert Reviews

Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues on rim. This has an elegant, tightly bound nose with a core of subtle aromas fo ripe white stone fruits, musk, hints of nutty barrel work and buttery MLF that unfolds in the glass. Dry to taste and bullish-bodied, savoury white and yellow stone fruit flavours are complexed by nuts, toasty oak and smoke nuances. The mouthfeel is creamy from barrel-fermentation and there is a lusciousness and richness that fills the palate. The flavours are entwined and driven, with good acid balance and freshness, and carry through to a very long finish with complex fruit and oak nuances. This is a rich and creamy barrel-influenced Pinot Gris with some power. Rating 18/20 - Raymond Chan (MAR/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes


The 2011 vintage Staete Landt Pinot Gris has a deliciously perfumed aroma of pear, vanilla pannacotta, orange blossom, and apricot.


The palate is broad with tropical notes, white peach and pear. This is made more complex by the flavours of toffee, cinnamon and vanilla spice. It is bone dry with a palate weight that provides stunning balance to a beautifully complex wine.


The wine is delicious now but will continue to develop over the next 5 years.

At Staete Landt we produce wine for the top end of the market, which is the segment of exclusive and (super) premium wines. With our team of passionate wine people we are highly committed to our land, our soils, our vines and our wines. We look after our vines and resources with great dedication in order to make wines that truly represent our unique terroir on the ‘Golden Mile’.

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.
