“It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves” – Sir Ed Hillary
The Mountaineer Pinot Gris pays homage to the pioneering spirit and sense of adventure displayed by mountain climbers confronting the forces of nature and celebrating the beauty and grandeur of the New Zealand Southern Alps. The preparation, passion and commitment necessary to grow and make Pinot Gris in Central Otago mirrors the challenges faced by these pioneering mountaineers.
Fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to capture the vivid fruit the result is a balanced wine that will make a versatile food pairing.
Impressive aromas of fresh grapefruit and citrus are the precursors to a Pinot Gris that is crisp, clean and refreshing. Mouth watering purity and length are perfectly balanced with juicy fruit weight.
A wine with real transparency and obvious links to its origins this Pinot Gris is the 2019 Central Otago summer caught in a bottle.
