The wine represents a blend of Pinot Gris from some of our finest vineyards in Gisborne. The blending in a small proportion of Gewurztraminer was carried out to increase the complexity of the resultant wine, adding spicy notes and an oily texture to the palate. The inclusion of a proportion of malolactic fermentation also adds to the textural complexity without diminishing the varietal character of the Pinot Gris. The result is an elegant approachable wine, distinctive to the Gisborne Region
