Canterbury Pinot Gris 2017
WINE ORBIT SAM KIM REVIEW August 2019 93/100 points, 5 stars
Complex and engaging, the bouquet shows golden peach, baked pear, fig and flinty characters, leading to a beautifully weighted palate that is focused and lingering. The wine offers excellent fruit intensity together with savoury nuances, finishing long and succulent. At its best: now to 2021.
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.
