Winemakers Notes

Our 2016 wine is 75% based on Pinot Gris from our Huapai vineyard, with most of the remaining fruit from Gisborne. The Auckland fruit was hand harvested 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.

Tasting Notes
Colour: Very pale in its youth, but we know from experience that New Zealand Pinot Gris will develop onion skins tints with age.
Bouquet: Subtle, yet exotic. A melange of apple, pear, a touch of earthiness and a pinch of spice.
Palate: Medium in body, with an exceptional balance between fruit sweetness and acidity. The finish is long, spicy and textural.

Cellaring
Our vines are still young and so we recommend that this wine be drunk while it is fresh and youthful.
 
Food Matches
This wine will be suitable with fish, white meats and salads
