Enjoy this special deal on a case (12 bottles) of our Bald Hills Central Otago Pinot Gris 2016.
'This wine is beautifully maturing; the lifted bouquet shows grilled peach, poached pear, mixed spice and rich floral aromas, followed by a succulent palate that is supple and lingering. It is attractively expressed and flavoursome with a lingering silky finish. At its best: now to 2021.' Wine Orbit 2019 (4.5 STARS)

The Bald Hills Pinot Gris 2016 being medium-dry, but fruity and flavoursome lends itself beautifully to pairing with spicy foods.
We recommend that you try it with Asian-style foods such as spicy pork spare ribs or a San Choy Bao. It is also delicious simply chilled, then sipped while sitting in the garden with the sun on your back and nibbling on julienned vegetables dipped in sour cream and dukkah.
The fruit for this Pinot Gris was hand-harvested on 12April 2016 at 22.8 brix and whole bunch pressed to tank and the juice was inoculated with selected wine yeasts. The juice was fermented in a stainless steel tank. The fermentation was stopped retaining 6.05 grams/Litre of residual sugar.
Pale straw with clear hues. Ripe pears, melon and ginger on the nose with hints of florals and lime. White peach, nashi pears, sweet ripe citrus, and melon show on the palate with a hint of gingerbread and spice. This wine is nicely balanced with sweet fresh fruit entry, plenty of acid and a clean complex finish.
Hand picked on 12 April 2016
Varietal: Pinot Gris 100%

Hand harvesting grapes is no mean feat in the world’s southernmost wine region where harvest often happens icy autumn mornings and requires significant labour.
