This instantly appealing Pinot Gris is filled with nectarine, pear, floral and mandarin aromas, beautifully enhanced by a succulent mouthfeel and silky texture. The wine offers loads of appealing flavours with a touch of sweetness, which is brilliantly balanced by refreshing acidity. At its best: now to 2018. June 2015.
Our 2015 Pinot Gris fruit was picked once the desired flavour profiles were evident on the vine and we’re happy with the resulting wine. Fruit was harvested then pressed into stainless steel tanks. Batch fermentations, using differing strains of yeast, were closely monitored and stopped when the wine was balanced and to retain some of the delicious natural fruit sweetness. The individual batches were then blended and stirred on lees before bottling to add a fine textural quality.
Winemakers Tasting Note
Our 2015 Marlborough Pinot Gris is balanced and charming. The wine displays lifted aromas of pear and nectarine with an underlying floral and ginger note. Soft and textural, this wine has delicious red apple and pear flavours combined with a crisp, refreshing finish.
This wine is packed full of flavour, fresh and mouth filling. Ideal as a aperitif, it would also pair well with either Pork or Chicken based dishes.
