The winery writes "Made from 100% Pinot Gris from a high altitude, single vineyard parcel located on the southern banks of the Awatere River in Marlborough. This low cropping vineyard was hand harvested and the grapes were whole bunch pressed before being cool fermented in a stainless steel tank followed by a four month period on lees to add a lovely talcum powder like texture to the wine. The GRIGIO 2016 is a delicate, lighter framed dry wine hence our reference to the more common Italian name for wines made from Pinot Gris. The nose is delicately perfumed with notes of freshly cut golden peaches, yellow flowers and straw. The palate is similarly delicate and dry with notes of dried stonefruit, sweet gala apples, some lovely baked spice and finishing long and dry. A great match with roasted lemon herb chicken, or ancient grain or couscous salads with spiced roasted vegetables."
