The fruit was gently pressed and the juice was floated and clean racked for fermentation. A selection of commercial and wild yeast strains were used at cool and warm temperatures giving the wine vibrant fresh fruit and a weighty textural element. 4% was fermented in older oak barrels adding to texture.
Our Reserve Marlborough Pinot Gris displays lifted aromatics of rose petal, tropical fruits and a hint of ginger. The palate is generous with stone fruit, melon and a subtle spice undertone. An off-dry wine with lovely flavour concentration, impressive weight and a lingering finish.
This wine is versatile and would pair well to a wide range of white meat and creamy pasta dishes. Try with a Roast Pork or Chicken Carbonara meal.
