Steve has found that this site in Gisborne produces pinot gris grapes that retain a wonderful flinty, minerality in the wine, for which the region is so renown. The aroma is intensely varietal, showing fresh pear with hints of exotic spice on the nose. The palate has both richness and poise with the ripe fruit favours highlighted by the wine’s sensuous texture. This is a pinot gris with the power to match richer dishes such as slow cooked pork belly with apples.
“Pinot Gris must exhibit purity of varietal character. It must be aromatic, flavoursome, and textural, but above all it must be balanced, and harmonious.” – Steve Bird
