Pinot Gris 2015
SILVER MEDAL . Delicate aromas of spice and floral notes intermingle with mineral tones. Sweet fruit adds texture and richness, rounding out this lovely balanced wine.
Our 2015 wine is based on Pinot Gris from our Huapai vineyard. The weather conditions were fabulous in 2014/2015 and this, with the vines becoming more mature, has resulted in possibly the best fruit was we have seen from here. The fruit was hand harvested on March 13, 14 and 15 and whole bunch pressed. Tank fermentation followed and then the wine rested on its yeast lees for a period of time, before stabilizing and bottling.
Very pale in its youth, but we know from experience that New Zealand Pinot Gris will develop onion skins tints with age.
Subtle, yet exotic. A melange of apple, pear, a touch of earthiness and a pinch of spice.
Medium in body, with an exceptional balance between fruit sweetness and acidity. The finish is long, spicy and textural.
Our vines are still young and so we recommend that this wine be drunk while it is fresh and youthful.
This wine will be suitable with fish, white meats and salads
