Pinot Gris

Pinot Gris 2010

Quartz Reef

Vintage: 2010

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 14th & 21st April from our Bendigo Estate vineyard.

Whole bunch pressed, minimum settling followed by warmish fermentation until dryness.
Lees stirred regularly before bottling in October 2010.

Quartz Reef Pinot Gris 2010 exhibits flavours of ripe pear, peach and marzipan with a rich texture and an off-dry mineral finish.
