Kim Crawford Pinot Gris
MARLBOROUGH, NEW ZEALAND
Sourced predominantly from the Wairau and Awatere subregions of Marlborough, this wine shows intense fruit aromas of pears, Braeburn apple, melon, and honey with hints of spice. An ideal wine by itself or paired with fresh seafood or Southeast Asian cuisine.
After harvest, the grapes were crushed and direct pressed with minimal skin contact. The clarified juice was then cool fermented to optimise varietal expression, flavour, and intensity. There was no wood and minimal skin contact. We used five different yeasts to ensure that we profiled the fruit and kept the fresh acidity.
- An ideal wine by itself or paired with antipasto, fresh seafood, South East Asian cuisine.
- Colour: Pale gold.
- Aroma: A delightfully aromatic nose of pear backed up with quince jelly and floral notes.
- Palate: Fresh, crisp pears on the palate with a generous mouthfeel. Elegant and supple, a wine that delivers lingering flavours of warm, spicy fruit and a bright, clean finish.
- Cellar: Two to three years with confidence.
