67% Pinot Gris & 33% Riesling
Cloud Walker is an ultra-juicy blend of Pinot Gris and Riesling from the Cirrus Vineyard in Martinborough.
The grapes are grown organically, there's nothing added to the juice at any point in the winemaking process. What you see in the glass is the end result of great fruit nursed to bottle with a gentle hand.
Skins play a part, as do old barrels and ceramic eggs. With no preservatives added to this wine, this is as natural as wine gets and it's down right delicious to drink.
Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"This years Cloudwalker focuses on a single vineyard south of the village sited on the edge of the Dry River. A rock strewn stream-bed that seldom carries water but finds its course high in the calcified mountain to the east. The grapes are Pinot Gris & Riesling, just under half has been fermented with skins and seeds to build texture and refreshing pith into the wine. The wine is wild and untouched, with nothing added or taken away.
Aromas of dried mango and earl grey with a touch of lemon zest. The palate balances textural weight with a dry crunch and a freshness tempered with bitters."
