Why we love this wine
Grapes & TerroirTerrace Edge is ultra-fastidious in its organic vineyard to ensure the Pinot Gris fruit has intense concentration of flavour. The vines are shoot-thinned to allow good exposure to the sun.
ViticultureWarm settled conditions led to good, even fruit set in the Pinot Gris. This was followed by a very hot dry December and January. At the end of January, there were some humid conditions so the vineyard team worked hard to avoid disease. The traditional scenario of a North Canterbury summer then set in again, bringing with it a record number of hot and dry nor’ west days in March.
Winemaking60% of the juice was barrel fermented in seasoned French oak. For added texture and complexity the lees were stirred periodically.
TastingThe nose is richly fruited and aromatic showing golden peach, pear and spice characters. The palate has concentrated fruit power with subtle sweetness, backed by velvety mouthfeel and refreshing acidity.
Wine & Food PairingGreat with Asian dishes, particularly aromatic spicy soups and dishes.
