Canterbury Pinot Gris 2016
BRONZE MEDAL NEW ZEALAND WINE AWARDS 2018
Flavour notes: White flowers and fresh Nashi Pear on the nose leading into a moorish pallet consisting of yellow-fleshed Nectarine. A medium bodied, structured Pinot Gris that leaves you salivating and wanting more.
Steeped in tradition our small hillside vineyard previously formed part of the early Ahuriri Run holding, first farmed by the prominent Rhodes brothers in the 1850’s. Named for the now ghost lagoon over which our vineyard views – once a rich wetland full of food, a warm spring with flax resources cherished by local Maori.
Today the humble hare stands. Introduced to the plains for sport. Stoic and unmoved under the rows. Sentinels of the crop – victorious.
