Peter Robertson has spent a lifetime honing an Alsatian sensibility, producing this little gem well before Madame Gris became quite so fashionable. With its vivacious, dry, aromatic palate and lively acidity, this is lighter and more floral than its counterparts from Alsace.
Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Some of the oldest producing Pinot Gris vines in Hawke's Bay. Nashi pear, white peach, spice and a hint of wild honey typify this 2015 ‘Robertson’ Pinot Gris. While it is off dry in style, the mid palate is rich and complex with good length and weight. This vibrant and engaging Pinot Gris can be enjoyed at lunch, late afternoon and equally with a diverse range of evening meals."
4 Stars & 18.0-/20 Raymond Chan, October 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"Bright straw-yellow colour with pale god hues, lighter on the rim. This has a full and voluminous nose with interwoven aromas of yellow stonefruits melded with pears, yellow florals, a little honeysuckle and complexing nuances of flinty lees. The nose builds to show a firm heart. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is bright, vibrant and lively with sweetly rich flavours of aromatic stonefruits, pears and florals along with notes of honeysuckle and flinty lees. The fruitiness is balanced by light, grainy phenolic textures, and the mouthfeel is energised by fresh, brisk acidity. The wine is vigorous and carries to a flavoursome, lingering, mouthwatering finish with aromatic fruit notes. This is a fresh, lively and vigorous dryish Pinot Gris with aromatic fruit, grainy textures and fresh acidity. Match with Chinese and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3+ years. Named for Peter Robertson’s passion for Pinot Gris. Fruit predominantly from the ‘Ohiti’ estate, cool-fermented to 13.0% alc. and 6.0 g/L RS, the wine aged on gross lees with batonnage."
