Vendanges Tardives Pinot Gris

nevis bluff Vendanges Tardives Pinot Gris


The grapes for this limited edition wine were left on the vines approximately six weeks after the main pick of Pinot Gris grapes in the vineyard resulting in a magnificent Vendanges Tardives style of wine, very similar to the great wines from Alsace with a new world twist.

2014 Vintage

This late harvest Pinot Gris has soft floral notes mingled with loquat and tropical fruit aromatics on the nose. A concentrated wine with a lush spicy palate full of warmth and softness leading to a strong persistent finish.

Tasting Notes

5 Stars, 95 Points

This is gloriously complex and opulent, while remaining stylish and engaging. Lifted aromas of mango, fig, lime marmalade and honey lead to a sumptuous palate that is richly fruited and subtly sweet, backed by bright acidity. It is multi-layered and symphonic, and finishes extremely long and gratifying. At its best: now to 2020.

This floral, gently sweet wine was picked at Pisa, in the Cromwell Basin, six weeks after the main harvest. Bright, light lemon/green, it is weighty, with vibrant, peachy, spicy flavours, hints of pears and ginger, a slightly oily texture, and excellent richness and smoothness.
