Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Along our shores holding fast to the rocks at low tide is the seaweed Durvillea, named after the captain of the Astrolabe, Dumont D’Urville. For me this seaweed defines the ruggedness of our rocky coast.

The Durvillea Pinot Gris is made in a dry style from grapes harvested at precisely the right moment to preserve the purity and intensity of flavour in my winemaking. Aromas of peach, light pear, and dried tropical fruits and citrus peel. The palate is medium-to-full-bodied with peach, melon and nougat flavours leading to a dry finish."
Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"The 2016 vintage was grown at sites from the Waihopai Valley to Kekerengu. Pale lemon/green, it is fresh, full-bodied and dry (3 grams/litre of residual sugar), with ripe, delicate pear, peach and spice flavours, and a well-rounded finish. Enjoyable young, it offers good value."
Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2016 Vintage)
"Light-bodied, dry wine with subtle flavours – made in a pinot grigio style. A suggestion of pear and tree fruit flavours together with some citrus and perhaps a nutty yeast lees influence. Clean, fresh, easy-drinking."
