Deliciously fragrant & off dry with subtle hints of spice, the warm Hawke’s Bay climate delivers a layered and textured treat.
Individual vineyard parcels of grapes from different vineyards are fermented separately in a mix of tanks and seasoned oak barriques. The parcels are then left on lees (the dead yeast cells used during fermentation) before blending and bottling.
This is a full bodied style of Pinot Gris with a hint of residual sugar to balance the natural acidity. Barrel fermentation in seasoned barriques provides the wine with richness and the early picked fruit provides fresh, natural acidity. Aromatics and flavours of stone fruit, honey and pears are evident with a hint of spice providing complexity.
Try with soft cheeses, pork dishes, or seafood.
