Cape Campbell Marlborough Pinot Gris 2016
An Awatere wine, and predominantly the super-cool Blind River, this is classic cool climate purity and brightness. Crops were heavy in Marlborough this year but a very favourable April weatherwise meant well-ripened fruit. The naturally low-cropping vines and dry conditions meant the Blind River benefitted even more with small, richly flavoured berries.
The Sounds Marlborough Pinot Gris 2016
A beautiful weighty entry Pinot Gris, with slippery texture that gives length and generosity. Produced by award-winning winemaker Jo Gear, reflecting her own blends and style. Predominantly from a single site in the Awatere where a vigilant grower and a special place deliver optimally ripe fruit. Just-dry it shows lovely soft pear and red apple skin aromas with a weighty entry that delivers a flavourful, slippery finish.
