Delicate with scented peachy, floral characters. The palate is brilliantly balanced with fine persistent bubbles, ripe red berry flavours and crisp, refreshing finish. Perfect with fresh sushi and sashimi.
Marlborough is a fantastic region for realising the full potential of grape varieties. With its mild springs, largely dry summers and consistently cool nights, we get this great extended growing season that means we can leave grapes on the vines until they reach their ideal ripeness.
The Pinot Gris parcels were harvested separately, pressed and cold settled for 72 hours. The clear juice was racked off and each parcel of juice was fermented separately, with special Pinot Gris yeast strains used to develop varietal character. A long, cool fermentation took place over four weeks. The parcels were then blended with 1.5% Merlot to create the pink hue, then stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
