2023 White Label Pinot Gris

$35.00

red apple  |  nashi pear  |  pomegranate  |  textural

750ml

What started as a mishap has become our signature style. Years ago, our Pinot Gris spent some unplanned time on skins, resulting in a beautiful colour, and a richer texture. We still follow this technique (with a little more precision!) today, making our iconic blush Pinot Gris. A sure favourite, this wine suits all palates and is great with or without food.

The 2023 vintage was a cooler vintage thanks to the La Niña phenomenon. This has translated to lovely acid and bright fresh fruit characters in the wines.
