Overview

"A soft, cuddly Gris with peachy flavours and a furry tail"

As soon as you lift the glass this wine will literally leap into your senses like the startled rabbit it is. It is bounding with fresh fruit aromas and flavours that remind me of my famous vegetable garden – apples, pears and honeysuckle. This wine is a veritable smorgasbord of tastes. Apparently it is the Energizer Bunny’s favourite tipple.

Expert Reviews

“A SOFT, CUDDLY GRIS

WITH PEACHY FLAVOURS

AND A FURRY TAIL"

"5 Stars", Roger Rabbit

Rabbit Ranch Pinot Gris, being a mutation of Pinot Noir, revels in the Central Otago conditions that suit Pinot Noir so beautifully - a long slow ripening period is desirable, with cool nights and warm days as the Autumn harvest approaches. The Rabbit Ranch Pinot Gris has a mineral acidity backbone and an off dry finish that gives the wine a delicious structure and refreshing style.

Winery Tasting Notes

A real crowd-pleasing pinot gris; the wine is beautifully fruited and fragrant on the nose showing white flesh nectarine, apricot, poached pear and subtle spice aromas, followed by a succulent palate that is plump and fleshy. It is silky and lingering with plenty of tasty flavours. .

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The original owner of the Rabbit Ranch – Mr McGregor  tried a number of measures to rid the land of the rabbits at the turn of the century, but was unsuccessful. In the end he decided to plant some vines and make wine.

The vineyard fell into decline after the second world war until direct descendants of Mr McGregor – Warren and Betty McGregor decided to replant the vineyard and as they say – the rest is history...

Rabbits still run wild on the vineyard and fuelled by high altitude Pinot grapes, some are reputed to be the size of ponies – but that could be another tall story...
