The Pinot Gris grapes were hand harvested in April with half of the fruit being gently de-stemmed and the other half left as whole bunches. The two different lots were then added back together and left to cold soak for 48 hours, with the skins giving the wine a lovely subtle pink hue. The wine was then transferred to stainless-steel vats where low fermentation temperatures and an aromatic yeast were used to accentuate the vibrant Pinot Gris characteristics. This wine spent two months on light lees post ferment to increase the complexity and mouth feel.

A crisp ripe wine with bright, zesty, citrus notes and well balanced acidity, nuances of nectarines and pears with a hint of apple. It has a tasty fresh finish and a sensuous aftertaste.

Winery Profile

Hinton Estate was established by the family that has grown premium stonefuit in Central Otago for over 100 years. The first vines were planted in the late 1990’s and Howie Hinton, a fifth generation orchardist, is the viticulturist and winemaker. The vineyard was established on steep north facing slopes where the terrain is too tough for summer fruit yet ideal for grapes, especially pinot noir and aromatic white varieties. The winemaking philosophy matches that of the family’s fruit operation, where only perfect fruit is accepted. The ethos is based on growing quality grapes and enhancing natural flavours through utilisation of simple, traditional winemaking techniques and the best technical innovation.
