“This is an interesting wine with a bronze color and citrus undertone. Character of persimmons and spiced pears with some iron. Flavorful finish. Fresh, too. Sort of an orange wine vibe to it! Awesome. Drink or hold.” – James Suckling

Tasting Note: From one of New Zealand’s pioneers of Pinot Gris. Opulent aromas of apricots and peaches jump out of the glass. Vivaciously mouth-filling with invigorating acidity, driving through the forefront, wonderfully sweet fruit from physiological ripeness. The lees contact adds to the silky texture and complexity. A beautiful long and uplifting finish for a dry Pinot Gris with no residual sugar.

Winemakers Notes:Meticulously hand-picked and destemmed grapes allowed for an extended skin maceration to extract the impressive flavours and pinkish colour. Using no cultured yeast (or any other adjustments and enhancements) for a true terroir wine with a sense of place, the must progressed naturally to a wild, cool fermentation without any residual sugar left. 20% of the wine matured in French oak puncheons for 18-months with its fine lees regular stirred assisting to the remarkable silkiness, complexity and depth. This wine has not been exposed to cold stabilization and fining, with only a light filtration to retain the elusive aromas. Natural sediments may show and are testimony of this high quality, dry Pinot Gris. Perfect in taste, naturally.” – Hans Herzog
