Sélection De Grains Nobles Pinot Gris

nevis bluff Sélection De Grains Nobles Pinot Gris


The fruit for this wine was allowed to develop the noble rot - Botrytis cinerea, and to hang on a selected portion of the Pinot Gris vines in the vineyard. Harvesting was done by hand where grapes were selected on a bunch by bunch basis, approximately six weeks later than the original estate selection.

2015 Vintage

This dessert style of Pinot Gris has intense floral and citrus aromatics with good density and texture. A rich, concentrated, yet beautifully balanced wine showing great depth and character. A truly magnificent D'Alsace style of dessert wine.

5 Stars

The 2015 vintage (★★★★★) is a truly memorable Central Otago wine. Bright, light yellow/green, it is enticingly scented, with lovely vibrancy and intensity of peach, pear and honey flavours. Unabashedly sweet (338 grams/litre of residual sugar), it is oily-textured, with balanced acidity, and notable concentration and harmony. Drink now.

93 Points.  Intense, sweet and syrupy pinot gris with peach, mango, honey and exotic tropical fruit flavours. Impressively concentrated wine - enjoy with white chocolate desserts.
