Vineyard Notes: Grapes are sourced exclusively from te Pā's gently sloping Redwood Hills Awatere Vineyard where Pinot Gris flourishes. Naturally low cropping, the new vineyard provides richly scented fruit with concentrated flavors and a lovely natural balance.

Vintage Notes: Cool spring weather at flowering led to very low yields with small bunches and berries in 2015. The summer was warm, dry, and settled, which allowed the small crop to ripen beautifully. The cool autumn nights helped retain freshness and acidity. Overall, a great growing season with very little disease pressure and plenty of good weather to ripen the fruit.

Winemaking Notes: te Pā's Pinot Gris fruit was harvested throughout the cool April evenings of 2015, transferred to the winery where it underwent temperature controlled fermentation (12 – 14 degrees Celsius) in stainless steel tanks. Post-ferment maturation on fine lees allowed for building a refined texture and palate weight into this wine.

Tasting Notes: Classic Pinot Gris notes of white pear, nectarine and subtle jasmine flowers show a wine of true distinction and class. The palate exudes purity and poise, with rich flavors of white peach and creamy nougat. A truly sensational glass of wine.
