Our Pinot Gris is a rich and aromatic wine with a luscious mouth feel. This is cool climate Pinot with beautiful sweetness that helps round out the natural acidity and amplify it’s subtle aromas of juicy red apple and honeysuckle on the palate.
3 Stars FMCG Magazine (NZ) Cameron Douglas – Fragrant and fruity with aromas of white flowers, an cool stones, honeysuckle then lots of white fleshed fruits, especially pear and a hint of lychee. Palate is off-dry (medium to sweet) with flavours of juicy apple and honeysuckle, medium acidity keeps the wine fresh and long.

91 Points 4 Stars Wine Orbit (NZ) – Elegant, poised and attractive. The delicately fragrant bouquet shows nectarine, ripe citrus and flinty characters, leading to succulent palate that is expressive and generously fruited, beautifully supported by whispering sweetness and refreshing acidity. The wine lingers long and tasty.
4 Stars Raymond Chan - Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with a suggestion of blush, near colourless on the rim. The nose is fresh and tightly bound with elegant, but intense aromas of white stonefruits melded with flinty and minerally lees and reductive elements, unfolding white florals in the glass. Medium-dry to medium in sweetness and elegant in body, light and tightly concentrated flavours of white and yellow stonefruits are interwoven with flint and mineral notes. The fruit is gently rich and the palate has a subtle lusciousness, and is balanced by some phenolic textures and lacy, background, refreshing acidity. The wine flows to a soft, slightly sweet finish with honeysuckle nuances. This is a medium Pinot Gris with gently rich flavours of stone fruits and minerals, and a fine-textured mouthfeel. Serve with poultry and pork dishes and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3+ years.
