Trophy for Champion Pinot Gris – New Zealand Wine of the Year Awards 2018
Gold Medal – New Zealand Wine of the Year Awards 2018


Marlborough winery, Misty Cove wines have plenty to celebrate, winning the Trophy for Champion Pinot Gris at the 2018 New Zealand Wine of the Year Awards. They also got a Trophy for their Landmark Gruner Veltliner. Not a bad result for a small family based, collective winery. Although dry, this Pinot Gris has a fruity succulence – spiced pears and a hint of Turkish delight. Perfect summertime sipping with or without food.


Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Misty Cove’s Pinot Gris is lovingly handcrafted and produced from our upper Wairau Valley vineyard where stony old river bed soils help create a floral and fleshy wine that truly captures Marlborough’s unique environment.

Marlborough’s famously rich soils give this Misty Cove Pinot Gris a fruit sweetness that's long and dry with hints of spice and Turkish delight on the nose. Enjoy this crisp drop when the sun is shining, along with great mates and good food.

Six hours skin contact to enhance flavours and texture. Fermented at 11-13° with two selected yeasts and stopped at 4.5 g/L residual to produce an off-dry wine with more mouthfeel and structure."


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, September 2018 (2018 Vintage)
"It is instantly appealing on the nose showing nectarine, fresh pear, orange peel and floral characters, followed by a succulent palate that is juicy and fleshy. The wine offers terrific varietal flavours backed by smooth mouthfeel and a lengthy tasty finish. Crowd-pleasingly delicious. At its best: now to 2020."
