Tax included.

Predominantly sourced from Villa Maria's iconic Seddon and Taylor Pass Vineyards, this Pinot Gris is a rich, textural, opulent wine with a creamy palate from spending extended time ageing on yeast lees. The exotic tropical fruit flavours are framed by a soft, yet balanced acidity and unctuous texture.

100% of the fruit is grown in the cooler, windier Awatere Valley (80% Seddon, 20% Taylors Pass), promoting slower ripening in the autumn weather which helps concentrate Pinot Gris flavours and retain natural acidities.

Hand harvested whilst fruit is cool to protect aromatics, gentle whole bunch pressed. 20% natural fermentation in seasoned barriques, the balance fermented in stainless steel with textural yeast strains. Resulting wines were left on their yeast lees for 6 months to build palate weight and creamy textures into the wine.
