Tinpot Hut Marlborough Pinot Gris
Tinpot Hut Marlborough Pinot Gris - The majority of fruit for Tinpot Hut Marlborough Pinot Gris was sourced from the 16.5 hectare Turner Home Block vineyard and the McKee Family vineyard - both in the Blind River sub region of Marlborough. A small parcel from the clay soils of the Wairau's Southern Valleys was used for the balance with a very small portion of Gewurztraminer (1%). Each parcel of fruit was carefully monitored during ripening so it could be harvested at optimum maturity in cool conditions.
Tinpot Hut Pinot Gris has fragrant aromas of spice, pear and stone fruit mix with underlying notes of brioche and freshly cut spring flowers. A medium bodied and textural wine, it shows flavours of ripe pear and white peach, with a touch of spicy nutmeg - characters which are synonymous with Pinot Gris grown in the Blind River sub region of Marlborough. This wine has beautifully ripe fruit flavours and is silky with good palate weight. The finish is both succulent and lingering.
