COLOUR  Straw gold with a hint  of copper.

NOSE Aromas of honeysuckle, melon and quince meld together to create the nose of this wine that is further enhanced by a lovely, perfumed fermentation bouquet.

PALATE Essence of pear and quince reward the taste buds that are further tantalized by the wonderful weight and structure of this wine. Full flavoured  and rich, the palate delivers a fantastic combination of ripe fruit flavours with a delightfully  balanced acidity and hint of residual  sweetness that enhances the length.

VINEYARD REGION 100% of the fruit for this wine was sourced from our Rewa Vineyard in the Upper Wairau Valley in Marlborough.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS Leading  up to the 2011 vintage in Marlborough, the weather  conditions were ideal for optimising the attributes of our vineyard. The large diurnal fluctua- tion in temperatures experienced by the Tiki Vineyards provided the ideal conditions for creating intense flavours while retaining fine acidity and elegance in the wines. Pinot Gris is a variety that needs full ripeness  to develop intensity of flavour and the terroir of our vineyard provides the optimum conditions to achieve this. The fruit, in perfect  condition, was the first to be harvested from these vines and it was picked in the cool of
autumn to ensure the essence of the vineyard was captured. The fruit was very gently pressed  to avoid harsh phenolic extraction and then  allowed to cold settle. The clear juice was then fermented that at low temperatures using yeast renowned for their  ability to enhance the Pinot Gris aromas while adding palate weight and structure.
