Pinot Gris

Pinot Gris 2008

Quartz Reef

Vintage: 2008

Pinot Gris is the only still white wine in our portfolio.

Made in a dry, rich, oily style, which is particularly suited to New Zealand cuisine as we strongly believe that pinot gris is the only white variety that can compliment these wonderfully diverse flavours.

Cuvee

Hand picked in ideal conditions and ripeness from 7-28th April from our Bendigo vineyard.

Whole bunch pressed, minimum settling followed by warmish fermentation until dryness.

Lees stirred regularly for six months before bottling in February 2010.
