Brilliant, light straw-yellow colour with light green hues on edge. The nose is elegantly presented with softly concentrated aromas of rose-petal florals with lifted pear and yellow stonefruit nuances, the nose growing in volume, density and interwoven completeness. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, a concentrated, rich core of pear fruit, yellow florals and honeysuckle unfolds layers of spices and flinty mineral complexities. This has weight and mouthfilling presence, the richness cut by fresh, lacy acidity. The wine is harmonious in presentation and follows a moderately firm and concentrated line to a dry, receding finish. This is a well-concentrated, subtly nuanced and complexed aromatic blend with palate presence. Serve with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 2-3+ years. 49% Pinot Gris, 32% Riesling and 19% Gewurztraminer from the ‘Seaview’ vineyard, Awatere, with parcels of each variety picked and vinified separately, plus a field blend of three varieties vinified as one parcel, all cool-fermented, the Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and field blend aged 2 months on less, then all blended to 13.0% alc. and 5.5 g/L RS.
