Carrick Bannockburn Pinot Gris

Carrick Vineyards, Bannockburn, Central Otago

Our Pinot Gris has a textural element on the palate that is reflective of an Alsatian style whilst retaining a clean acidity that is the hallmark of our windblown glacial soils on the Cairnmuir terraces in Bannockburn. Notes of pear and fresh Braeburn apples are present, balanced by a hint of clove spice.

Delicious with a pear and walnut salad.

The wine is subtle and poised on the nose showing fresh pear, apple and lime peel characters with a lovely savoury nuance. It’s focused and elegantly weighted on the palate with textural mouthfeel and crisp acidity, finishing lingering and mouth-watering. At its best: now to 2023. - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Bannockburn, Central Otago

We believe that the elements of a good Pinot Gris are a perceived weight and texture on the palate. Made from 100% Estate Grown, BioGro certified organic, Central Otago Pinot Gris. The fruit was crushed, then pressed and fermented using wild yeast to foster complexity. It was fermented in a combination of old French oak barrels (36%) and stainless tank. The barrels remained on ferment lees for 7 months, which added additional texture and weight to the blend. There is also a hint of residual sugar to add balance to the palate.

Bob Campbell MW, 91/100 - Ripe pinot gris with punchy tree fruit, pear, mango, honeysuckle and ginger root flavours. A smooth-textured wine, with a backbone of refreshing acidity that helps drive a lengthy finish. Dry but certainly not austere.
