Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"​A very classic Pinot Gris originally influenced by the style of wines from Alsace but developed over the years into our own, uniquely Martinborough style. The vines from which this wine was produced are now 22 years old. With roots that have driven metres deep into the gravels, they consistently deliver fruit with heightened texture and flavour. 
 Up-front aromas on this lively 2016 are reminiscent of pear drop and creamy white peach, 
with fresh ginger and lemon grass notes underpinned by more savoury, brioche-like notes on the finish. The palate lingers, showing the same delicacy that is a consistent feature of the whites from this vintage. With just 5g/l residual sugar, Pinot Gris is a delicious stand-alone aperitif. It is also one of our favourite food and wine matching choices, especially for anything with heady spice and/or challenging flavours."
5 Stars & 19.0/20 Raymond Chan, October 2016 (2016 Vintage)
"Bright straw-yellow colour with slight golden suggestions, a little lighter on the rim. This has a tightly bound nose with good depth of yellow stonefruits and savoury pears interwoven with harmonious layers of honeysuckle, nuts and flinty mineral detail, unfolding yellow florals. This has freshness, vitality and blossoms in volume in the glass. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, bright, lively and lusciously succulent fruit flavours of yellow stonefruits and pears are enriched by honeysuckle, and detailed by nutty, flinty and mineral notes. The fruit is enlivened by fine, lacy acidity and guided by a fine line of refined phenolics lending a balancing dryness. The wine carries with some underlying alcoholic drive to a long, fine-textured and detailed finish of stonefruits, florals, honey and minerals. This is a bright, lively, rich, dryish Pinot Gris with detail, refined textures and fresh, lacy acidity. Serve with mildly spicy Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 4 years. Fruit from the ‘Lismore’ and ‘Ata Rangi’ vineyards, vine 22 y.o., hand-picked, WBP and partially indigenous yeast fermented in tank and 500 L oak puncheons to 13.5% alc. and 5 g/L RS, the wine aged several months on lees with no MLF."
