Mount Brown Estates Pinot Gris 2023


A North Canterbury Pinot Gris that shines bright.

"There’s no mistaking the vibrant youthful scents of fresh pears and apple, some quince and honeysuckle. A youthful fleshy bouquet with a touch of white spice. Fleshy, crisp, fruity and just dry as the wine touches the palate, flavours of white fleshed fruits including nectarine, spice and a touch of ripe citrus peel. Balanced and well made with a satin smooth texture offering excellent drinking from day of purchase through end of summer 2025." 92/100 Cameron Douglas

This delicious wine has upfront fruit with lovely pear and peach flavours. Some subtle quince and spice notes add to the complexity.  Some residual sugar (7g) results in a medium-full palate with great texture.

The vines are on well-drained sandy gravels on a warm site.  A blend of two different clones LBS and 2/15 which enhances depth of flavour. The grapes were harvested in April over a period of three weeks. Winery
