Winemaker Notes
In 2017 we sourced our SV Pinot Gris from a mature block in the Omaka Valley. The Southern Valleys performed magnificently in 2017 and we harvested fruit in beautiful condition. The fruit was juiced in Marlborough and clean juice tankered to us in Auckland. This wine is all stainless fermented and is designed to highlight the transparent beauty of Marlborough Pinot Gris in a great year.
Analysis
Alc 13.5% Acid 5.8g/L Res sugar 7.0g/L pH 3.56
Tasting Notes
Colour: Very pale gold in its youth. With time it may well pick up some onion skin tints. This is very typical for Pinot Gris as it ages. Bouquet: A lovely mix of ripe pears and spice. Palate: This wine is remarkably full bodied and textural for a Pinot Gris. It had real presence on the mid palate and the flavours linger well after swallowing. It is distinctly off dry and the residual sugar gives the wine tremendous length.
Cellaring
This wine is already drinking beautifully and will develop more complexity with medium term cellaring.
Food Matching
Antipasto platters. Asian inspired cuisine is also a perfect match for this exotic dry white wine.
