Media Release             17 December 2013

Expressive Reserve Pinot Gris 2013 from Gunn Estate


Click for big version.

Gunn Estate Reserve Pinot Gris has harnessed the best of the outstanding 2013 Marlborough vintage in a wine which is both complex and expressive.

The wine, released this week, is built on the strong winemaking tradition of the Gunn Estate brand, to showcase the essence of Pinot Gris as a varietal and the Marlborough origins of its fruit.

The Gunn Estate Reserve range was launched earlier this year with four wines from the 2012 vintage. They have quickly proved popular among Kiwi wine drinkers while attracting plaudits from many of the country’s wine writers for their quality and value for money. The 2012 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc also won a gold medal at the Spiegelau International Wine Show shortly after its release.

The wines from the stunning 2013 vintage look certain to take an already impressive reputation to the next level.

The Marlborough vintage was blessed with a cool spring and early summer followed by a warm, dry autumn, creating perfect conditions to produce intensely flavoured wines. The grapes for Gunn Estate Reserve Pinot Gris 2013 were picked in the cool night and the juice gently pressed from the skins to maximise fruit expression in the finished wine.

Tasting Note: Light golden colour. Aromas of lychee and rose blossom with a hint of nutmeg – all on a solid platform of Packham pear. Silky palate of richness with a pleasant vein of acidity to extend the length.

Food match: Large tempura battered king prawns (with tails on) served with homemade ponzu dipping sauce. (Juice of 1/2 lemon, 90ml Japanese soy sauce, 2 tablespoons mirin, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, whisked together until all ingredients dissolve. Refrigerate for at least an hour).

Recommended retail price: $19.99.

Gunn Estate Reserve Pinot Gris 2013 is available at supermarkets nationwide.
