Vintage Notes; Parcels of grapes were harvested when physiologically ripe from several of our vineyards in Marlborough. The vineyards with heavier soils add weight to the wine, where the lighter soils bring varietal aromatics. In the winery the majority of juice was fermented in tank at various temperatures and with various yeast to capture varietal character and build interest. The balance was fermented in old French oak and lees stirred to increase the body and complexity of the wine.

Tasting Notes; The sweet, lifted aroma of proving bread appeals on the nose along with pleasant notes of white stone fruit, with spice and citrus adding to this sensory delight. Sweet Danish pastry and spicy pear tart emerge out of the succulent and sweetly fruited palate. Generous mineral flavours compliment the rich and full weight. Ginger and lemon zest add a pleasing zing to the finish

Reviews; "Bright straw-yellow colour with lemony hues, pale on edge.  The nose is light with fresh aromas of white and yellow stonefruits, lifted rose-petal florals, hints of minrerals and some honeysuckle notes.  Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate features well-concentrated and deep flavours of white and yellow stonefruits enriched by honeysuckle notes.  The palate has a rounded core with good underlying power and drive, the alcohol carrying the phenolic line.  Soft, discreet acidity adds to the mouthfeel and vinosity, and the wine carries through to a long, dry finish with some honey flavours.  This is a well-weighted, dry Pinot Gris with honied notes and some power and drive."
-Raymond Chan,, Feb 2015

"Gris as it should be with a fuller and richer almost rounded bouquet; plenty of sweet ripe pear and apple aromas laced with spice and a little intrigue. On the palate dry, warm and fruity; a wine similar in nature to Alsace examples. Medium+ acidity and weight, moderate length and finish, balanced and well made."
-Cameron Douglas MS - NZ Liquor News April 2015
