Baby Doll Pinot Gris 2018
The 2019 growing season in Marlborough was a hot and dry one. We received small amounts of rain around the end of December, but then no further until late February. These rain events had very little impact on soil moisture levels, but helped to replenish our rivers, setting us up nicely to see us through to harvest. Vintage started in mid-March and it provided us with incredibly stable weather. This meant we could pick blocks at their optimal ripeness. The resulting Pinot Gris is focused, with lifted aromatics and a beautiful concentrated mouthfeel.
