The Hunting Lodge Pinot Gris 2020

This is a wine with depth of flavour, texture and interest. Poached pear and Lemon sherbet aromas first entice. Honeysuckle, grilled nectarine and red apple flavours follow with a subtle nod to Lemon Custard.

The palate is rich and weighty, with a line of fine acidity providing tension and a little residual sweetness to balance. The grapes come from Marlborough’s Awatere Valley, where cool conditions provide the perfect balance of aromatic finesse and flavour intensity with mouthfeel and fresh acidity. Picked at optimal ripeness, fermented, and then left on yeast lees for several months, the result is an opulent, lush style of Pinot Gris, reminiscent of Alsatian Pinot Gris form Northern France.
