Kōpū Pinot Gris - Gisborne 2020
Grapes for this wine were grown in the Ngātapa Valley region of Gisborne district where dry-farming practices have been employed for over 75 years.
Post-harvest the grapes and juice were processed with care to maximise fruit flavour and intensity. The resulting wine has lovely floral aromatics on the nose, while the palate is showing peach, fresh pear, apple blossom and subtle spice.
Ideal food pairings include fresh salad and vegetable dishes, white meats and Asian cuisine.
"This is attractively fruited on the nose showing white stone fruit, apple, lemon zest and subtle spice characters. The palate is gently weighted and rounded, delivering juicy fruit flavours and smooth texture, finishing pleasingly dry."
