Florale Duftigkeit, Birne und Pfirsich mit einer warmen Orangennote und zartem Schmelz am Gaumen. Exzellente Textur und im Abgang Zitronenblüte. Viel Spaß mit einem seriösen und dabei oberleckeren Pinot Gris aus einem Betrieb, der noch keine Fabrik ist!

Are you up for a little culinaryadventure to this Danish bakery I know?
As we open the door and go inside your first breath is a blend of Burnt orange, mandarin peels, and spices. Hold that thought. That’s the beautiful aroma of this Pinot Gris. Now let’s indulge in one of those vibrant summer stone fruit pastries in the cabinet. The first bite, surprisingly, isn’t sweet. Instead, it’s simple and clean, a delicate balance of acidity with a cream-like texture in the mouth. It’s full of fresh-cut peaches, oranges, a little spice and with a slight sweetness to finish. You can’t help but take another bite just to make sure you got it all. Maybe one more. Do you feel like kissing the baker? That’s what you can expect from this easy-to-drink, Marlborough Pinot Gris.
Vinification: Crushed and pressed immediately after harvest before undergoing a cool fermentation to retain a crisp freshness.
Appearance: Light straw yellow.
Bouquet: Bright aromas of burnt orange, stone fruit,
mandarin peel and spice.
Palate: Complex array of peach, citrus and spice, the palate is textural and full from extended lees contact.
Enjoy now or over the next three years.If you can wait 5 minutes after buying it before twisting the cap off, you’ve exercised some real restraint...
The 2020 vintage in Marlborough was exceptional, with periods of long warm weather ensuring fruit quality was pristine.
