Commercial description

This wine utilises fruit from unique Hawkes Bay vineyard sites. The Barber Vineyard in the Esk Valley is planted on river silts deposited by the Esk River while the Keltern vineyard at Maraekakaho is planted on a stony river terrace of the Ngaruroro River. Each vineyard is trained on a VSP trellising system and intensively managed to provide ripe fruit at low yields.


WINEMAKING
The fruit is picked early in day while cool and transported to the winery as quickly as possible for processing. An early pick from the Barber Vineyard provides natural acidity and freshness to the finished wine while the later pick from the Keltern vineyard provides richness and aromatics. The individual vineyard parcels are fermented separately in a mix of tanks and seasoned oak barriques. The parcels are then left on lees before blending and bottling.

WINEMAKER'S COMMENT
This is a full bodied style of Pinot Gris with a hint of residual sugar to balance the natural acidity. Barrel fermentation in seasoned barriques provides the wine with richness and the early picked fruit provides fresh, natural acidity. Aromatics and flavours of stone fruit, honey and pears are evident with a hint of spice providing complexity.

FOOD MATCH
Try with soft cheeses, pork dishes, or seafood.

IDEAL DRINKING
Enjoy as a young wine or cellar for two to four years for a richer and more complex style.
