The 2019 Pinot Gris is pleasingly refreshing. It is a genuinely classic Central Otago wine. The wine displays lifted notes of lime and citrus zest and sweet spice aromatics with notable hints of nectarine and honey blossom on the nose.

The dry style Pinot Gris still displays an impressive fruit sweetness; it will fool your palate. It has only 2 grams of residual sugar per litre. Fresh pineapple acidity and unctuous texture make it a balanced wine with a mineral backbone. That Pinot Gris shows drive and persistence; you're sure to enjoy the long lingering, refreshing finish.

The Pinot Gris was hand harvested and selected during the last days of April and in Gibbston on May 1st. The wine was whole bunch pressed and fermented in both older oak barrels (15%) and stainless steel tanks. Indigenous yeast fermented the wine over three months to dryness.
