Wine tasting notes

Grown on the alluvial gravel soils of the Martinborough Terrace during a cool growing season for the district. A longer summer allowed fruit to ripen wonderfully producing opulent fruit flavours combing beautifully with barrel fermentation to create Burgundian inspired Pinot Gris. Flavours are reminiscent of ripe pears and white stone fruit with delightful soft texture ensuring a long commanding finish. A dry style has enhanced the fruit flavours Pinot Gris is renowned for. Partial malolactic fermentation and lees stirring has improved the texture and mouth feel allowing it to match most entrée dishes. A great alternative to Chardonnay it has been inspired by the classical French approach to the variety. It is an accurate reflection of Martinborough’s unique terroir. Cellar for up to five years or more, successfully.
