Pinot Gris 2008

Yesterday we bottled our 2008 Pinot Gris, which will be our first commercial release of Pinot Gris.

It was picked in April, straight after the Pinot Noir, just as the rain was coming on, and sent to Jane Cooper at Matahiwi Estate.

Jane’s been taking care of this wine, and has been impressed with its development.

So this week it returned to Martinborough, to Martinborough Winemaker Services Ltd, and has given us just under 3,800 bottles. Not a huge quantity, but the quality, we hope, will be very good.

Unfortunately we arrived when the bottling was completed, and the staff were just packing the final cleanskins into pallets. Lewis, as always, was his smiling, helpful, wonderful self.
