The majority of the fruit for this wine is from our own Waihopai Valley vineyard. It was cropped at low levels to achieve concentrated flavours and a rich, weighty texture. 10% of the juice was fermented with wild yeast in aged French oak. Aromas include freshly sliced nashi pear, lemon curd and almond meal whilst the palate which is just off-dry, add ripe, juicy stonefruit characters.
Enjoy whilst young or cellar for two to four years.
Vegan friendly wine - Perfect with rich cheeses, roast pork with a pear sauce, creamy pastas, poultry and seafood.

Bob Campbell MW - Four Stars / 92 points
Dry-ish Pinot Gris with reasonably concentrated pear, quince and guava flavours together with ginger and toasted nut. A smooth-textured wine with good weight and a lingering finish. Delicious now, but no rush. Drink 2017 - 2020
