With summer fruit aromas of peach and nectarine, Akarua Pinot Gris 2016 is pinot perfection to toast and tantalise the tastebuds of the warmer days ahead.
Akarua Pinot Gris 2016 has a bouquet of white peach, pear blossom and a hint of ginger with ripe pears, notes of nectarine and orange peel across the palate. A pleasant creaminess to the texture enhances these rich flavours.
Produced from the rugged landscapes of Akarua’s vineyards in Central Otago, the cool climate has a wonderful influence on the wine. Perfectly balanced with fine acidity, great texture and complexity; the 2016 Pinot Gris is well-structured with a delightful richness and poise.
Winemaker Andrew Keenleyside comments, “The rich flavours of pear, peach, nectarine and orange are beautifully balanced with a fine acidity leading to a long mineral infused finish. This bright, clear Pinot Gris is the perfect accompaniment to a seafood dinner party, a summer lunch of grilled vegetables or fresh salad, as well as a gourmet BBQ with meats spiced with coriander, fennel, turmeric or ginger”.
