Wine tasting notes

This is a full-bodied but drier style of Pinot Gris. Barrel fermentation has provided the wine with richness but without oak characters and the early picked sites have provided fresh, natural acidity to the finished blend. Aromatics and flavours of stone fruits and pears dominate with a hint of spice providing complexity.

Food matching

A delightfully aromatic wine, this is great for aperitifs in summer and makes an interesting and unusual accompaniment to light salads and pasta dishes. It can take on some spice, cream and smoked fish, as well as seafood and shellfish. In his excellent book How to Choose Wine, Master Sommelier Vincent Gasnier suggests a match of fettuccine in a tomato and basil sauce, and highly recommends matching it with sushi. It is a good wine to offer to wine-knowledgeable friends, who might not yet be aware of the delights of New Zealand Pinot Gris.
