Camshorn Waipara Pinot Gris 2022 750ml
Camshorn Waipara Pinot Gris 750ml
Hints of apricot and honeysuckle on the nose lead on to a rich, textural palate. The wine is medium-bodied, with ripe nectarines-and-cream stonefruit balanced by citrus. The wine finishes long with further notes of pear and a hint of spicy ginger.
The Camshorn vineyards are along the East coast but sheltered from cool Easterly winds by the Teviotdale Hills, allowing warm daytime temperatures at ripening. The vines are planted predominantly on Glasnevin Gravels, which are light, free-draining stony soils, consisting of a thin (200-350mm) silt loam topsoil overlaying a stony, sandy loam with sandy gravels underneath.
Food Pairing: Enjoy this wine solo or pair with simply roasted chicken or seared firm fish. A meal with warm spice hints will also match well, such as a stir fry with ginger or 5-spice. Crumbly and tangy cheeses will be fantastic, with some sliced pear and walnuts alongside.
