Tasting Note: “A light golden hue with aromas of white peach, ripe pear, lemon zest, orchid and oyster shell. The palate is complex and layered with flavours of citrus, stone fruit, white blossom and sea salt that complement a richly textured palate with perfectly appointed acidity that lingers intensely on the finish. This sophisticated young wine is both charming and intense. It aptly captures the ethereal nature of the Waitaki and has great aging potential. This Pinot Gris is engaging on its own but shows real magic when paired with delicious cuisine.” – Jen Parr

Winemaking Notes: This single vineyard wine was made from low yielding vines. The wine was 100% fermented in neutral white barrels (228 litres each). The fermentation was intentionally long and slow with partial malolactic fermentation occurring and delayed sulphuring which resulted in a dry wine. It spent 6 months on fermentation lees in barrel which contributes to the silky and generous texture. Dry – 1g/l residual sugar. 2,894 bottles total production.

Alcohol: 13.5%

Variety: Pinot Gris

Region: Waitaki Valley, North Otago, New Zealand
