Mount Fishtail Pinot Gris

Harvested in the cool of the morning & softly pressed. Fermented slowly in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures to preserve the floral and fleshy flavours.


Aromas of stone fruit and lemon peel are perfectly balanced by fresh acidity to give a crisp, dry and mouth-watering finish. A wine that showcases the textural nature of Marlborough Pinot Gris.

TASTING NOTES:

This beautiful wine matches with a wide range of cuisine from soft cheeses that help enhance the earthy, mineral flavours through salmon sushi, or a tuna roll. Our recommendation though is Chicken Piccata, a comforting Italian classic made with lemon, butter and capers.

"Youthfully charming and splendidly fruited on the nose showing apricot, Asian pear, white floral and lemon zest aromas. The palate delivers succulent fruit intensity, beautifully complemented by fleshy texture and rounded mouthful, leading to a lengthy refreshing finish. At its best: now to 2025."
