Each year we strive to deliver a Gris that explores the potential of this variety. Our cool climate instils each release with minerality and natural acid backbone, providing for a wine with true character.

Rose gold yellow, coppery hues derived from 10% whole bunch inclusion.

An array of aromatics ranging from perfumed apple blossom, to fresh cut pear and blood orange citrus notes that merge with ginger spice and pastry notes.

Mouth watering! Rich pear and zesty stone fruits meet a glistening acidity that simply floats along a creamy, textural palate that’s flavoursome and long.
