Tasting Notes

This Pinot Gris is sourced from our iconic Seddon Vineyard on the southern bank of the Awatere River. This is a rich, textural wine with a creamy palate from spending extended time ageing on yeast lees. Aromas of fresh honeycomb intermingle with juicy summer peaches, the fleshy palate is framed by soft but balanced acidity with a lingering, textural finish.

Vineyards and Winemaking

This single-vineyard site is situated on the southern bank of the Awatere River in Marlborough, sheltered from the cooling southern weather patterns, resulting in a warm meso-climate. The loam soils have a distinctive soft clay "papa-rock" base allowing grapes to easily achieve physiological ripeness and fruit concentration in a cool climate region. The vineyard has several terraces gradually gaining in altitude away from the riverbank. The Pinot Gris vines planted at Seddon vineyard are between 13-18 years old.

2018 - 94 points. Pure and ripe white-fleshed fruits with gently spiced red apple, D'Anjou pear and quince. Refreshing and lively in the palate with layers of white spice, white-fleshed fruit and a lesser led texture. Plenty of length, a hint of residual sweetness and warming alcohol. Great balance. Drink now and through 2022.
