Uniquely salmon pink in colour, a feature that has become synonymous with The New Pinot Grigio. A richly broad yet refreshing and supple style, in part derived from extended contact of the juice with grape skins prior to pressing. Complex fruit aromas of pear, quince and nectarine are evident, finishing with hints of citrus and a rosy floral lift.
COLOUR – The Ned Pinot Gris signature pale salmon blush.
AROMA – A bouquet of ginger spiced, nectarine and golden
skin apples with the delicate floral lift of fresh cut
PALATE – Extended skin contact on a selection of the
ripest fruit parcels is essential for promoting the
signature salmon pink colour of The Ned Pinot
Gris. Equally important is the positive effect this
technique has on the wine’s depth of flavour and
overall mouth feel; balance and drinkability is
achieved via a fresh thread of Waihopai acidity and
the long, lightly drying tannin tail.
FOOD MATCHING – A highly versatile food wine; our Pinot Gris has
been internationally recognised over several
vintages as the best wine match for Cantonese
CELLARING POTENTIAL – Crafted to enjoy whilst young and fresh; we
recommend drinking this wine within 2 – 3 years
of vintage date
