Astrolabe Kekerengu Pinot Gris 2021 Marlborough

$31.95

Astrolabe Kekerengu Pinot Gris 2021

Nashi pear, white-fleshed nectarine, ripe red apple with a hint of ginger and nutmeg aromas. A crisp and focused wine with fine minerality and delicacy of structure. Lively flavours of pear, apple and elderflower. This wine is already drinking well and has the potential to age gracefully.

The Kēkerengū Coast Pinot Gris was grown on a low river terrace of free-draining limestone loam above the Kēkerengū River. Profoundly influenced by the nearby sea, the southerly Kēkerengū Coast is Marlborough’s first valley for budburst, but fog and cool breezes make it the last to harvest. This long growing season, combined with Kēkerengū’s limestone soil, gives wines of restraint and elegance. This is a wine we make only in the special vintages where conditions are perfect.

Hand-picked grape bunches were gently whole cluster pressed, and a lightly cloudy free-run juice was cool-fermented on light grape solids in stainless steel.

The wine has an elevated, almost floral perfume and a precise but satisfying structure. Ours is the only pinot gris grown in that part of the province, and the pinot gris from Kēkerengū has its own particular expression, with bright acid, more perfumed floral notes and a unique palate structure.
