Rich and smooth. Fresh, light acidity with light fruit sweetness.
Tasting Notes: The Stoney Range 2018 Pinot Gris has a rich flavour profile and silky smooth mouth feel. The palate is medium bodied with a slightly off-dry finish. Barrel aging small parcels of wine has given a richness and leaves a smooth finish in the mouth. Cool fermentation has allowed for gradual flavour development and a complex array of fruit aromas and flavours. A light acidity provides a freshness that coupled with the light fruit sweetness.
Pioneers of the Waipara Valley the Sherwood family have been working this land for over 30 years.
Waipara is a region with great potential that is still to be realised fully, with greater extremes of frost and warmth than its close neighbours, Marlborough and Nelson. Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris are a special focus here with a fresh regional style of their own. Perfect counterpoints to some of the more famous regions of NZ.
