Tasting Notes

Nashi pear, nectarine, exotic floral and savoury stone fruit on the nose. Flavours of pear, floral and stone fruits with honied elements on the palate. Medium weight palate with a light acid backbone and balancing phenolics that lead through to a lingering, aromatic finish. Best enjoyed with grilled salmon with Thai-inspired dressing or goat's cheese with quince paste. 13% Alcohol. 

Winemakers Notes

The 2017 Sherwood Pinot Gris was made from fruit harvested from our Pilgrim, Terrace, Georges Road and Stirling vineyards in the Waipara Valley. Roughly 6% of the fruit was fermented “on skins” like red wine, resulting in an “orange” wine that provides broader phenolics, a rounder palate and spicy complexity. The remaining fruit underwent a number of treatments including indigenous fermentation, extended skin contact, whole bunch fermentation and barrel fermentation. The parcels of wine were then blended, filtered and bottled.
