A classic Pinot Gris originally influenced by the style of wines from Alsace but developed over the years into our own, uniquely Martinborough style. With some of the vines from which this wine was produced now over 23 years old. With roots that have driven metres deep into the gravels, they consistently deliver fruit with heightened texture and flavour.
Classic aromas of pear and walnut lead into citrus, apple and spicy notes on the nose. The palate is smooth and supple with flavours of apple, sultanas and cinnamon reminiscent of a still warm Baklava dessert. The richness of flavours is balanced by long, savoury finish.
The deep and complexity of flavour make it one of our favourite food and wine matching choices, especially for anything with heady spice and/or challenging flavours. This textural style, fermented in neutral barrels will benefit from bottle age.
