2016 Single Vineyard Pinot GrisPinot Gris
NEW RELEASE! Wine Showcase Magazine 94 points.
This limited production, hand crafted wine is made from 100% Pinot Gris grapes sourced from a small premium vineyard in Eden Valley. Our winemaker, Jo Irvine, quips that the Pinot Gris grape is “the ugly duckling of grapes that turns into a swan in the glass” – provided it’s well made of course!
Jo describes Pinot Gris as “the red man’s white” as it has more palate weight than you would normally find in other white wines.
Light bronze or straw in colour, Nashi pear and melon aromas are complemented with tropical fruit flavours and a crisp, refreshing acidity.
Pinot Gris is an ideal food wine. Enjoy it as an aperitif or with light seafood and chicken dishes.
