The Astrolabe Province Marlborough Pinot Gris is made from grapes grown across three Marlborough sub-regions — the Wairau Valley, the Awatere Valley and the Kekerengu Coast.

Half of the grapes are machine harvested at night and whole-cluster pressed to preserve the lifted fruit characters and the rest is handpicked to add fine texture, weight and minerality.

Winemaker Simon Waghorn aims for an aromatic, crisp and precise Pinot Gris, with the ability to pair well with food and to bottle age gracefully.

Light straw in colour this wine displays aromas of pear, light peach and citrus rind and a whiff of cardamom and nougat. The palate is pure with a delicacy of structure, finishing crisp and dry. Stone-fruit and pear flavours dominate, followed by some light citrus flavours.
