2013 Huia Pinot Gris
The 2013 Pinot Gris is estate grown on Huia’s Winsome and Home vineyards. These vineyards have a range of soil types from windblown glacial gley and sandy soils, to very stony alluvial silts in Rapaura.
The grapes were harvested on the 4th & 7th April. Both vineyards achieved excellent ripeness and flavour with grapes reaching 23.5 Brix. Around 75% has been partially fermented and matured in neutral French Oak for up to 12 months.
On the nose ripe pear, ripe blossom and mandarin notes integrate with a delicate hint of spice. The palate is rich with a silken creamy texture. Ripe pear and white peach flavours combine with a delicate touch of spice & nuts. It has an excellent length and structure. The wine is certified organic and is vegan friendly.
The Shout NZ
Alluring and complex bouquet of honeysuckle, wild flowers, organic apple and pears, leesy spicey and mild toasty layer. On the palate – equally complex and layered with wild white honey and flowers, fresh and baked pear, light spices and plenty of texture; energy and charm, lengthy finish – a lovely wine.
