WINEMAKING NOTES

Te Whare Ra are passionate about aromatic varieties and particularly those from Alsace so it was only a matter of time until they took on the challenge of Pinot Gris. When they first bought their property they replanted a section of the old block with the Berry-Smith clone of Pinot Gris. They selected this particular clone for its low cropping, small bunches and small berries as they felt it would deliver the best fruit. 

All fruit for this wine was hand-picked and hand-sorted. The grapes were destemmed, lightly crushed then gently air bag pressed, some parcels had lenthier skin contact time. Fermentation 70% stainless steel, 30% in old French oak for texture and complexity. The tank portions underwent slow, cool ferments to retain aromatics. Barrel ferment parcels were carried out in large format neutral oak on full lees, and lees-stirred regularly. All parcels given time on ferment lees to provide texture and complexity. This wine has not been fined and is suitable for vegans and vegetarians and anyone else who loves authentic, hand-made wines!

TASTING NOTES

This wine is finely structured with great purity, length of flavour and a lovely fleshiness. Lifted aromas of nashi pear, raspberry, red apple and white florals follow on to flavours of the same along with savoury undertones which are balanced by fine, supple texture with layers of flavour.

2015 was an exceptional vintage in Marlborough, characterised by a warmer and drier than average summer. It has resulted in very balanced, fleshy wines with lovely purity and ripe, juicy acidity. This 2015 Pinot Gris is enjoyable to drink now and will also benefit from careful cellaring for 3-7 years.
