Harvested in the cool hours of the morning they were gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel vats. A small parcel was fermented and aged in older French oak to add texture and palate weight. After blending the wine was left to settle before bottling on the Wairau River Estate.
From our original Home Block dating back to 1990, these grapes are from some of the oldest Pinot Gris vines in Marlborough.
The pure age of these vines give the wine texture and palate weight. It is rich, floral and fleshy with mouth-filling stone-fruit, pear and spice flavours.
