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.

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

Bouquet
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.

Palate
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.

Cellaring Suggestions
Immediate enjoyment is guaranteed as is an easy five years in the cellar.

  • Fruit Handling: 100% Pinot Gris.  90% whole bunch pressed, 10% whole bunch (3 weeks skin contact)
