Kim Crawford First Pick Pinot Gris 750ml
The fruit for this wine was sourced from Waipara, New Zealand. Picked at optimum ripeness the grapes were crushed and destemmed, then direct pressed with no skin contact to manage the concentration of flavours. The clarified juice was fermented at a cool temperature using selected yeast strains and the wine was racked off yeast lees directly after primary fermentation to maintain a fresh flavour profile.
- Color : Pale straw with green hues.
- Aroma : A rich tropical aroma of pineapple, passionfruit, and peach complemented by some citrus notes.
- Palate : Delicious ripe quince and pears combined with a hint of peaches and cream from the malolactic influence. This wine exhibits all the Pinot Gris characteristics.
- Food Pairings : A very approachable, food friendly wine that pairs nicely with seafood, chicken and summer salads. Also delicious as an aperitif.
