Description

This 2019 Pinot Gris represent one of Nelson’s finest vintages. A dry spring, followed by a hot and dry summer with a little bit of rain just before harvest began, resulted in intense flavours and ripeness in the grapes and wines.

Luscious and full flavoured with notes of pear, honeysuckle quince and spicy undertone, there’s a touch of residual sweetness here making it the perfect match for spicy canapés or lightly spiced creamy curries.

  • Off-dry, luscious, aromatic

Producer: Kahurangi Estate

Kahurangi Estate is a family owned boutique vineyard dedicated to producing hand-made, sustainable premium wines from their cool-climate Nelson, South Island location. Greg and Amanda Day moved back home to New Zealand with their young family in 1998, to purchase the existing Vineyard in Upper Moutere and develop the Kahurangi brand.

Along with their daughter Samantha as part of the management team, they have focused on cultivation of Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blnac amongst others from their vineyards which have the oldest commercial vines in the South Island. They bottles some of their reserve wines in honour of Mount Arthur, one of the highest mountains in the Kahurangi National Park. Standing at 1,795 metres above sea level it makes a majestic backdrop to the Kahurangi Estate vineyard.

Chief wine-maker Neil Todd has been with Kahurangi Estate since April 2000, ably assisted by Burgundy specialist and oenologist Emmanuelle David, and all efforts combined have resulted in Kahurangi winning international acclaim and critic's awards for their range of estate bottled and Mount Arthur special selection wines alike.

    Sam Kim

    "It is wonderfully fruited and immensely appealing on the nose showing poached pear, rockmelon, apple and white floral aromas, followed by a beautifully weighted palate that is succulent and flowing. It is up front and flavoursome, offering terrific drinking." — 93 points.
