Tiki Estate Waipara Pinot Gris 2016

$23.00 $20.70

A delicate, straw gold colour.  Beautifully ripe and fragrant. The inviting bouquet shows yellow stone fruit, baked pear and floral characters with hints of spice and clove honey notes. The palate is rich up front with abundant citrus & stone fruit. Full round & smooth balanced by good structure & a spicy finish. Succulent and elegantly opulent backed by refreshing acidity. A generously flavoured Pinot Gris.

Description

REGION

Grown on the free draining Waipara terraces

VINTAGE

The Waipara Valley is snuggled in the lee of the Teviotdale hills that provide protection from cool easterly winds but open to warming north west winds. The protective Southern Alps ensure low rainfall, abundant sunshine and often very warm summers, helped by the famed hot, dry nor’wester winds, though cooling sea breezes and the occasional cold southerly fronts temper this. Drought risk is mitigated by irrigation. Canterbury’s long dry autumns coupled to good diurnal variance help provide phenolic ripeness, complexity and a variety of styles. The 2016 Vintage in Waipara had very warm daytime temperatures, tempered by cool nights and a very dry autumn allowed for gradual and even ripening of fruit, provided the ideal conditions for creating intense flavours.
