2017 Estate Pinot Gris, Kumeu River, New Zealand

Tasting Notes

The aromas have typical peach and stone fruit notes tinged with the floral perfume that we have come to expect from Pinot Gris. On the palate the wine is rich and complex with a lively texture on the palate. Pinot Gris is a variety that goes particularly well with food, including quite intensely flavoured dishes. It is also one of the few wine styles that can handle the spiciness of chilli, so together with the sweet succulence of prawns, a nicely chilled bottle of Kumeu River Pinot Gris makes up a spectacular combination.

Vintage Description

The wild yeast fermentation took place in tanks over an extended period. Fermentation was stopped at 4.1 grams per litre of residual sugar.

Property Information

Well received at our recent Kumeu River tasting with Paul Brajkovich, and a popular wine with our customers, this is consistently a great example of what a good Pinot Gris should be. Melon and stone fruit character perfectly counterbalanced with fresh acidity, a mineral edge, and a hint of freesia. Astonishing value with its long delicious finish.
