The winemaker selected fruit from nine exceptional vineyards in Central Otago with an emphasis on cooler sites to create a fresh and elegant wine that will age gracefully. The winemaking intention was to craft an exciting and highly drinkable wine from a blend of special sites that come together in harmony.
Colour: Clear crimson
Nose: The nose is fresh and floral with lively red fruit and spice with a hint of nuttiness.
Palate: The palate is elegant with silky, fine tannin and a long, warm finish. There is power beneath the silkiness and a dark fruit character that both add intrigue.
Grape Varieties: 100% Pinot Gris
Ageing: Aged in fine grain French Oak: 12% new, 40% 1 year old and the remainder in 2-5 year old barriques for approximately 12 months.
