‘Vin d’Or’ 2019 (Gold Wine in French)
80% Pinot Gris / 20% Gewürztraminer
Marlborough, New Zealand
The grapes were hand-picked from an organically farmed estate with 25+ year old vines on gravel soils next to the Wairau River. The wine was kept on skins for 5 days before pressing and fermented naturally. Unfined, unfiltered.
This is your desert island wine, with its blood orange hue, rose petal and tropical fruit aroma and thirst inducing tension on the palate. Pop open a fresh bot, chuck in a straw and sip away like you’re at Copacabana. No worries. Tastes like a holiday. Feels like a hug from mum. Awww.
