Tasting Notes

An attractive nose of ripe peach, nashi pear, red apple, honey suckle and just a hint of white flowers. The palate is where the wine really shines; beautifully balanced, rich, full and textured, with a crisp, refreshing finish.

Vineyard Sites

Our Forrest Pinot Gris grapes are grown on two distinctly different sites. The Wairau River Valley; has a gravel-rich, free-draining and devigourating soil profile, giving citrus and apple flavours, fine acidity and a fantastic minerality. The north bank of the Wairau River, where the soil is a mixture of river stones and Kaituna clay, gives a much more exotic flavour profile – orange blossom, peach, Asian pear and honeysuckle.

Vinification

The grapes were machine harvested in the cool of the night, cold settled and fermented 50% in stainless steel tanks and 50% in old oak barriques, left on its lees for 3 months before blending and finishing for bottling in late spring.
