Here's a flavour packed Pinot Gris! It will attract your attention as much as it has the wine judges in the past. A full rich style that bursts with poached pear flavours and a hint of sweetness. Delicious!
Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"The warm, dry climate, high sunshine hours, and long growing seasons in the region of Waipara are perfectly suited to produce Pinot Gris with ripe flavours whilst retaining a good natural acidity. The wine displays lovely delicate floral Pinot Gris characters of fresh citrus, white pear and hints of lychee and spice. The palate is textured and mouth filling finishing with excellent freshness. Best enjoyed young."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, September 2020 (2020 Vintage)
"Wonderfully ripe and immediately appealing, the wine shows apricot, mandarin, pear and subtle spice notes on the nose, leading to a succulent palate that's fleshy and persistent. A comforting wine with plenty of delectable flavours, offering terrific drinking. At its best: now to 2023."

"Juicy apple and pear weave in and out of the tropical fruit flavours with tingles of ginger and strudel spices adding liveliness and freshness to the beautifully rounded, very moreish and just off-dry finish."

"Bright pear and ripe stonefruit give this attractive youthful aromatic pinot gris a lift. A crisp textural palate that treads lightly yet still manages to be mouthfilling. A well handled wine; juicy, fresh and relaxed with a sort of spicy purity. A delicious example that only asks to be enjoyed."
