Pinot Gris was first planted on our Te Muna Road Vineyard in 1999. After decades of experience growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, we knew it had the potential to flourish on the Martinborough Terrace.
The variety benefits from our vineyard’s alluvial gravel soils, dry climate, and warm summers. Each vintage is barrel fermented, to focus on the natural aromas flavours and texture of this wine.
