Monowai Pinot Gris 2021

Spice ● Pear Citrus

Tasting Notes

Fragrant aromas of juicy nectarine and rock melon with hints of floral honey. On the palate, a refreshing mix of ripe stone fruits, pear, spice and citrus notes, balanced with delicate acidity. Our Pinot Gris wine style blends the freshness and pear notes of Italian Pinot Grigio with the richness of Alsatian Pinot Gris and is a real crowd pleaser.

Winemaker's Notes

We have 2 blocks of Pinot Gris; one nearer the river and one closer to the winery. Each block is harvested separately at peak flavour and sugar ripeness to match our desired wine style. The grapes are machine harvested, crushed and pressed to stainless steel tanks for ferment. The juice is inoculated with yeast and fermented at cool temperatures to preserve all the primary fruit aromas and flavours. Following ferment, the wine is racked off its lees and blended together. The wine has been filtered and minimally fined to ensure its purity and freshness.

Region: Hawke's Bay

Food Match

With gentle acidity, pip fruit aromatics and plush nectarines and spice on the palate, the Monowai Pinot Gris pairs well with a number of dishes and cuisines. This wine has the palate weight and richness to compliment creamy sauces and strong cheeses but also the finesse and freshness to enhance more subtle flavours too. • Smoked chicken carbonara • Green Thai curry • Quattro formaggi pizza • Fish or vegan sushi •
