21 Pinot Gris
2021 Pinot Gris shows fragrant and ripe fruit characters on the nose. The elegant palate has spicy undertones with clean tropical fruit enhanced by some citrus undertones. The wine has wonderful depth and complexity along with an off dry finish. This is a fragrant Pinot Gris that will age well over the next 5 years.
We are proud that this wine is Certified Vegan by the NZ Vegetarian Society.

The fruit for this wine was sourced from the Rapaura sub-region of Marlborough. The grapes were harvested at different maturity levels to add complexity of the finished wine. The pressed cloudy juice was fermented in stainless steel and old French oak barrels before being blended back together for a brief period of lees aging. Oxidative juice handling techniques were employed to minimise phenolic uptake.
