2019 Stanley Estates Awatere Valley Pinot Gris

4 Stars Richard Caro
In stock
Marlborough's Awatere Valley really shines here. The aromatic fruit is beautifully ripe and honeyed while the valley's bright acidity is not edgy but integrated perfectly into a beautifully balanced, just off-dry Gris to enjoy by itself of with spicy white meats. This producer is a favourite of ours, but up-and-comers always have to work harder to over-deliver -- and Stanley definitely do that.

Pinot Gris

Its Origins

The vineyard is nestled under Mount Tapuae-O-Uenuku (Maori" "Footprint of the Rainbow"). At the top of the Southern Alps, it strongly influences the climate, with its rain shadow bestowing low rainfall and low humidity upon the Awatere Valley. Along with sunny days and cool nights this creates perfect conditions for slow steady ripening and flavour development. Awatere grapes have a distinctive fruity yet steely and herbaceous flavour quite different to those produced elsewhere in Marlborough.
