Floral aromas of pear and stone fruit, nectarine and peach.
Layered with fruit, this wine is a great combination of creamy Pinot Gris characters and fresh clean dry finish. Its charm lies in that it is soft and yet refreshing at the same time.
With grapes sourced from Ants Nest vineyard in the Waihopai Valley, this wine was fermented as three different batches. Each batch has had a different treatment. Cool ferments, lees stirring, and indigenous yeast have produced a very complex and interesting wine with finesse and balance.
From my home vineyard, this Pinot Gris is a culmination of years of work. It is my first estate grown Pinot Gris and hopefully a sign of good things to follow.
With vineyards situated in the Waihopai, Awatere and Upper Wairau areas of Marlborough, New Zealand, Ant Moore wines are generally more restrained with minerality, complexity and great balance. Control and hands-on management of the vineyards and the winemaking process, creates rich wines, with ripe flavours and texture and fresh lifted aromas, signatures of the Marlborough terroir.
