Waipara Valley

Home Block Pinot Gris

Select Vintage:

 

This single vineyard Pinot Gris is sourced from The Home Block Vineyard in the Waipara Valley. The vineyard was established in 2002 on terraced gravels that offer little fertility which, along with Waipara’s long cool growing season, provide perfect conditions for growing world class cool climate Pinot Gris.

Comments
The grapes were hand picked at optimal flavour ripeness, gently pressed and settled to tank. The wine was then fermented with a handful of selected yeast strains. A portion was fermented in old French oak barrels resulting in complexity and structure. The wine was then left to mature on gross yeast lees to enhance structure and mouthfeel. The wine was then fined, filtered and bottled.

OUR PEOPLE.

We live amongst the vineyards in the beautiful South Island of New Zealand. For us it’s all about lifestyle. We’re lucky to enjoy the simple things from the land; like fresh crayfish, scallop season and wild venison. And because our wines are available in cities around the world, we also thrive on what the world has to offer. Pretty much the best of both worlds we reckon.

FOOD, FAMILY & FRIENDS.

Our fresh accessible style of wine is made to be shared. Crisp whites, rich aromatics and reds with depth and purity.Everyday wines to enjoy on any occasion.

“When friends pop round, it’s our ‘go to’ wine. You could say it’s our house red.”

– Jack Glover

IMPORTANCE OF PLACE.

The South Island of New Zealand covers over 151,215km2 ofrugged mountains, lakes, glaciers, ski fields and rivers. As proud guardians of the land our iconic vineyards are located in some of New Zealand's defining wine regions: Marlborough, Central Otago and the Waipara Valley. Each location has been selected with care and foresight; and as a result we aim to interfere as little as possible once the grapes arrive in the hands of the winemakers. Each vintage we create a portfolio of pure, expressive, balanced, vibrant and honest wines.
