Five stars 93 Points - Candice Chow Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
"Bright, pale yellow, slightly lighter edged. The nose is soft and elegantly presented, nuances of Poire Williams, green melon melded with white floral, ginger and a hint of stony mineral. Medium-full bodied, off-dry to taste, pear and apple aromas entwined with ginger and white spice, along with a touch of honey and floral. Stony mineral provides a chalky mouthfeel; spices linger with a bright acid line and balanced sweetness to a lifted, refreshing finish. This is an off-dry Pinot Gris with balanced fruit and acid on a brilliant mineral palate. Match with five-spice pork chops and lemongrass fish over the next 4-6 years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, cool-fermented to 14.1% alc, 14.1 g/l RS. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Aug 2021 RRP $29.90"

92 Points Premium - Cameron Douglas
"White pepper, green pear, honeysuckle, quince and wet stones mineral complexity. Mirrored on the palate as flavours with medium+ acidity, core of fruit, a fine sandy mineral texture and balanced, dry and even finish. Satin texture, some floral notes then a return to varietal fruit flavours. Balanced and well made - drink upon purchase and through end of summer 2022."

Winery has sold - stock must go.

The fruit was 100% hand harvested Pinot Gris from the Waitaki. Harvest took place on April 2 nd 2020. The fruit was whole bunch pressed to a stainless steel tank for cold settling for two days. Then racked to tank inoculated with a selected wine yeast. The cool fermentation in tank was stopped to retain a touch of residual sugar.

Pale lemon with clear hues. Aromatic with rockmelon, pawpaw, nectarine and lemon zest. A mineral off dry entry with tropical fruits, melon, white peach and apricot. A juicy sweet mid
palate balanced with fresh acidity and a long bright and juicy melon finish.

 Alsatian style pinot gris at its finest - rich and delicious.
