Pinot Grigio/Pinot Gris
Pee-noe Gree-joe / Pee-noe Gree
Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris are one in the same grape variety, but quite different in style. Pinot Grigio has gained an immense following in the UK, and most hails from north-east Italy, Veneto. It's lighter in style and best drunk young. Pinot Gris tends to have more body and is more vicious in texture.
In 2013 the acquisition of the 2,300 hectare Leefield Station property located in the south of the Waihopai Valley, helped to grow the family vineyards and continue Winemaker Brent’s philosophy of controlling his own destiny. This historic farming station, known for its production of quality beef and lamb,is now home to over 650 hectares of vineyard.The vineyards embody a boutique, small-block functionality on a large scale, taking the fresh, vibrant flavours of Marlborough wine to the world.
The islands here stretch nearly 1,000 miles north to south, and the climate varies from subtropical in Auckland, to positively perishing in the south. 2018 will be remembered by many wineries in here as a year for the record books.Explore New Zealand
