The Crossings, Pinot Gris
Availability: - Currently Out of Stock
The Crossings Pinot Gris is brimming with concentrated notes of ripe pear, quince, and honeysuckle, with underlying spicy aromas. The palate is luscious and generous showing wonderful balance between fruit and acidity with a long dry finish. Carefully selected Pinot Gris blocks were harvested, destemmed, and gently pressed. The free run was left to settle for 72 hours, and the clear juice was then fermented to stainless steel tanks and to be blended, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
Ideal with poultry and mushroom dishes such as creamy pasta with porcini, and Asian inspired dishes.
The Crossings vineyards are located in the Awatere and Wairau sub-regions of Marlborough, New Zealand, where vines flourish under brilliant sunshine and cool coastal breezes. The Crossings wines are a pure and elegant expression of Marlborough, New Zealandís most prominent winemaking district. With vineyards in the Awatere and Wairau subregions of Marlborough, surrounded by mountain ranges, a wild river and the Pacific Ocean, The Crossings create perfectly balanced and refreshing wines. The extreme climate of hot days and cool nights produces slow-ripening grapes, creating the intense, concentrated fruit flavours and crisp acidity.
