The Nevis Bluff Pinot Gris has proven to be an outstanding example from the inaugural 1998 vintage which won a Gold Medal and the supreme trophy at the 1999 Royal Easter Show.
Created in a dry and textured style, our Pinot Gris has a rich mouth feel and shows great persistence and depth.
Lime, pepper, mango and pawpaw aromatics are followed by a wet stone mineral drive showing lychee and spicy textural qualities. Good persistence, elegance and balance on the finish.

94 Points. This is a stunning Old World-inspired pinot gris; the complex bouquet shows golden peach, baked pear, potpourri and jasmine characters with subtle savoury nuances. The palate delivers excellent concentration and weight, wonderfully complemented by juicy fruit intensity and rounded mouthfeel, finishing impressively long and expansive. Style: Off-dry. At its best: now to 2020.
