Overview

ibrant and perfumed, with classic cool climate Pinot Gris aromatics of white peach and ripe yellow pear. Considered, early picking and time on lees has ensured that the wine is elegant and textured, yet finishes bright, refreshing and dry.

Sourced from Seresin's clay-rich hillside Raupo Creek vineyard, which has a gentle north-west facing aspect, settled in the centre of the Omaka Valley.

2018 will be remembered as being rather unusual for Marlborough, with a run of wet weather conditions following a period of warm weather. Fortunately our vineyards all fared well, with low yields and careful management ensuring a large proportion was harvested by the end of March. Above all, winemakers will remember this vintage for its fast and furious nature – blink and you nearly missed it! However the resulting wines are showing a great deal of poise, elegance and subtlety. We are beyond excited to nurture them into the bottle and bring them to market.

Certified organic grapes were hand-picked and whole bunch pressed. The free run juice settled naturally for 48 hours, then racked into both a stainless steel tank, and old neutral barrels whereby the juice commenced fermentation naturally, after 5-10 days. A long, slow fermentation took place (four months), then the individual barrels and tank were blended to rest on fine lees for a further three months. After stabilisation, the wine was filtered prior to bottling.

Winery Tasting Notes

Whole-bunch pressed and matured in old French oak barrels, this Pinot Gris offers an excelent balance between white stone fruits and a soft well structured acidity. The nose exhibits notes of gently spiced orchard fruits, hay and ripe white peach. The palate is textural, with layers of soft stone-fruit, savoury warm brioche and a refreshing dart of preserved-lemon acidity. Certified organic and biodynamically grown. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans. No dairy products or eggs used during production.
