Multiple French clones of Pinot Gris from Te Muna Road Vineyard are hand-harvested together for the freshness of flavour and carefully pressed to extract the purest juice and lovely spicy notes from this fragrant cultivar’s skins. Slow but warm fermentations then create a lovely round palate feel to counter the vibrancy of fruit which is a hallmark of our Te Muna Road Vineyard.

Tasting Notes

Pale lime to pale straw. Exotic nose with notes of nashi pear, lavender and rose petal. The palate has slippery phenolics and a
prominent acid line that perfectly matches the hint of lingering residual sugar. It is a wine that is robust in flavour but also
delectable.

Tasting Notes

Pale golden straw. A nose that over-delivers in both fruit and spice intensity. Lifted nashi pear, apricot flesh and subtle freshly
grated ginger. A great core of plush fruit, with a soft but linear acidity carrying the sweetness of fruit through the finish. A perfect
varietal expression.
