The Landing Boathouse, Bay of Islands Pinot Gris 2020

TASTING NOTES

A lovely light aperitif, The Boathouse Pinot Gris delivers on our aim of creating a flavourful versatile food friendly wine with bright refreshing acidity. 

The palate is lovely, light and bright with a creamy feel of baked apple, pear and a hint of vanilla. The totally dry long spiced finish of clove, ginger and apple tatin makes for a delicious wine.

VINEYARD AND WINE MAKING

This fruit was mostly whole-bunch pressed, settled and racked to stainless tanks for fermentation. Around a quarter of the harvest was given extended skin contact prior to fermentation which increases colour, phenolics and aroma. Fermentation was cool and slow to maximise fruit and floral characters in the wine. The wine was then settled naturally before filtration and bottling.

Harvested from a mix of clone 457 and Barrie vines growing in the greywacke clay soils. Hand-picked across several days from late February to mid-March following a warm, dry growing season.

VINTAGE NOTES

A lovely light aperitif, The Boathouse Pinot Gris delivers on our aim of creating a flavourful versatile food friendly wine with bright refreshing acidity.

Hand-picked in exacting lots over several days from late February to mid-March following a warm, dry growing season made for a bone dry expression of Pinot Gris. On the nose the wine offers lovely subtle pear, cinnamon spice and a floral, jasmine scent.

The palate is lovely, light and bright with a creamy feel of baked apple, pear and a hint of vanilla. The totally dry long spiced finish of clove, ginger and apple tatin makes for a delicious wine.

The Landing Vineyard on the Purerua Peninsula has been thoughtfully farmed for over a century, the young crumbly clay soils these vines have been selectively planted on naturally moderate vigour ensuring high quality, well balanced wines.
