The colour hits us first, a vibrant rose gold colour that gives away the skin contact factor of our Pinot Gris. Pinot Gris is a variety that can have both white and red grapes in a bunch, giving our wine some skin contact makes the brilliant colour. Fortunately, this also helps with aromas and delivers lifted honeysuckle, dew drop melons and a light vanilla marshmallow, like a summer stone fruit cocktail from the pool bar in most Fiji resorts. Delicate ripe peach flavours and a hint of Nashi develop on the palate and the zingy spice like Auntie May’s sweet fruit cobbler adds a mouthfeel and weight to balance it all out leaving your mouth just salivating enough to want more.
Fresh, zesty, juicy and full, this fruit driven new world style wine will excite the senses without the racy overload. Tropical fruit with a fresh herbaceous character balanced with zesty passionfruit and a dry finish, this wine will take you straight back to the warmer summer days.
Always sensational with fresh Marlborough seafood, or try with West Coast whitebait fritters.
Aromas of butterscotch and pecan crumble over white flesh nectarines and the freshness of a pineapple Fruju down by the Wairau River in the summertime. Add in the smokey overtones and a creaminess that layers over the lingering pineapple backed up by the heirloom grapefruit fresh from the backyard. These characters all combine their unique acid profiles that blend to give this Marlborough Chardonnay its unique fruit forward freshness, yet still, speak to its classical French inspiration.
Definitely one we would share with anything from grilled crispy skin salmon, wood roasted rotisserie chicken or even a slow cooked BBQ rolled pork roast.
