Tasting Note

October special $14.95

The grapes for this cooler-climate loving variety were sourced from Maraekakaho and Waiohiki sub-region of Hawkes Bay, which enjoy a temperate

climate moderated throughout summer by cooling afternoon breezes. 2015 produced clean, healthy, flavoursome fruit, which was harvested on 21 March and 2nd April 2015 at 22.4° Brix.

This immediately appealing wine was crafted in a fruit forward style achieved through vinification in stainless steel, along with a slow fermentation initiated with yeast specially selected to bring out the luscious intensity of this aromatic variety. The emerging wine was co-fined with casein and isinglass and then stabilised prior to bottling on 30th and 31st July 2015 under screwcap.

This delicious Pinot Gris is a blend of fruit sourced from two superior vineyards in Hawkes Bay. Full bodied and smooth, it displays attractive peach and pear flavours, complexed with hay and a hint of figs. It’s enveloping spicy lift leads toa soft and dry finish, a great match with antipasto, chicken or fish dishes.
