From several vineyards positioned throughout Marlborough comes this rich, full bodied Pinot Gris which is partially barrel fermented. It has stone-fruit and spice flavors with a soft finish - medium dry in style.
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 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 complement the rich and full weight. Ginger and lemon zest add a pleasing zing to the finish.
