Description

Falconhead Hawkes Bay Pinot Gris

The Falconhead Hawkes Bay Pinot Gris has a very light salmon hue. The nose is a delicate blend of pear and apricot overlaid with lychee and lavender.

The palate shows flavours of pear and spices – nutmeg and cinnamon. The slight sweetness is balanced by soft acidity.

The grand rounded gables of The Wine Portfolio’s Cellar Door are a distinctive feature of the lush green pastures of Katikati, New Zealand.

Since 1978 the estate has been a place where wine making is seen as an art, not just a business. In such a place, Falconhead Hawkes Bay Pinot Gris is carefully made.

New Zealand’s temperate, maritime climate and rich, free-draining volcanic soils have brought new intense flavours and styles to the world wine market.

With vineyards in prime locations such as Hawkes Bay and Marlborough, The Wine Portfolio combines the finest grapes with the best winemaking techniques, as well as passion from their dedicated winemakers.

They have taken the boutique winery approach to winemaking by controlling the entire process – from grafting their own cuttings, developing their own vineyards and viticultural techniques, and investing in the best technology possible.

Owning 503 planted hectres of vineyards, The Wine Portfolio has a secure supply of grapes that are grown specifically to match their wine styles.

The fruit for the Falconhead Hawkes Bay Pinot Gris was sourced from  two of their Hawkes Bay vineyards.  About ¾ came from Kinross on the left bank of the Ngaruroro river and ¼ from Riverview on the right bank.

The fruit was pressed in their Riverview winery and the juice transported to their Katikati winery.  At Katikati the juice was fermented in stainless steel at low temperatures to preserve the delicate aromatic character.

A number of separate batches were fermented using a range of yeasts to add complexity.  Some of these ferments were stopped before reaching dryness and these were used during blending to achieve the desired level of residual sugar.
