Tasting Notes

The Awatere Valley lies in the Marlborough region in New Zealand, and hot days and cool nights bring out the best from the Pinot Grigio grapes used here.

Deliciously fragrant with honeysuckle aromas and ripe pear flavours, this silver medal winner is PG, NZ style.

Perfect with prawns or seafood risotto.

Storage Instructions

This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 1 year

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2012 vintage, Olly Smith said: "Pinot Grigio with lashings of personality. Summery, scented and packed with flavour, grab this exuberant vino".

Olly Smith - Event Magazine, Mail on Sunday 11/05/2014

Of the 2012 vintage, Olly Smith said: "“A dazzling beauty from New Zealand. “Pinot Grigio, also known in its richer form as Pinot Gris is actually a mutated grape of the red variety Pinot Noir and in the mass market it makes a wine with a neutral flavour and a wide appeal. However plantings in New Zealand are on the rampage thanks to wines like this one, that have fruit that’s so bouncy and vibrant it’s like a pear the size of a space hopper. “The zesty character of this zinger from New Zealand tickles an absolute treat.”"

Olly Smith - BBC Saturday Kitchen 24/05/2014

Of the 2012 vintage, Hamish Anderson said: “A marketing department has taken liberties here as this has more in common with an opulent Alsatian pinot gris (the same grape) than a neutral Grigio. Semantics aside it’s a cracker. Spice, musk and peachy fruit vie for your attention. Off-dry, it would be perfect for spiced, barbecued prawns.”

Hamish Anderson - Daily Telegraph Magazine 21/06/2014

Background

History

Located in the southern Awatere Valley sub-region of Marlborough, Yealands Estate is arguably the most ambitious family-owned vineyard enterprise in New Zealand. Yealands Estate is a showcase of innovative environmental sustainability. The wines are carefully nurtured from the vine to the bottle with low impact methods, leading-edge green technologies and some very inventive thinking. Yealand’s carbon neutral winery was one of a handful in the world to achieve carboNZeroTM certification.

Regional info

Pinot Gris flourishes at Seaview, with pure fruit flavours prevailing along with a crisp minerality that is evident through all our wines. The vines planted are of the Berrysmith clone which produces smaller berries and bunches, giving more intense flavours.
