This Pinot Gris has an expressive nose showing Nashi pear and white stone fruits, floral tones and subtle garden herbs.

The palate is mouth-filling and juicy with soft and fleshy vibrant white fruit, baking ginger and citrus. It is finely balanced with an off dry, lingering finish.

Reviews

“Very approachable and fragrant, the bouquet shows ripe nectarine, fresh pear and rock melon characters with a nice floral lift. It is juicy and nicely rounded on the palate with pristine fruit flavours and smooth texture, well framed by refreshing acidity. Certified organic.”
87/100, 4 stars, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Winemaking notes

The grapes were destemmed and very gently pressed, with no crushing. The pressed juice was allowed some careful oxidation to naturally soften its tannin structure.
Once settled, the clear juice from the first pick was racked and fermented in stainless steel to retain primary fruit character.
The juice from the second pick was fermented in barrel for added texture and complexity.
