“New Zealand’s cooler, maritime climate engenders numerous more phenolic, Alsatian-inspired, waxy textured (Pinot Gris) wines imbued with great complexity and nuance”Neal Martin, www.eRobertParker.com
Mouth-filling, rich, refreshing. An intense pleasure, whether refreshingly light or richly complex.
Grown throughout New Zealand, our Pinot Gris is fresh and full-flavoured, with notes of apple, pear, honeysuckle, spice and bread.
It is more akin to Alsace in style than the drier Pinot Grigio.
Barrel ageing, fermenting with native, wild yeasts, and lees stirring are common winemaking practices in New Zealand to build texture, mouthfeel and complexity.
