Rimu Grove Winery Bronte Pinot Gris Rouge 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Classic aromas mix ripe tropical fruit, citrus, and pear with hints of spice and minerality; fruit-forward, medium body with roundness and a pleasant mouthfeel; good balance; finish is long, clean, spicy and mouthwatering.

Rimu Grove Winery was founded in 1995 in the rolling hills above the scenic Waimea Estuary. The search for the ultimate expression of terroir is reflected in the wines: a synergy of Nelson sunshine, Moutere clay gravels, maritime microclimate and the pursuit of perfection. In the early 1900's, a complete city plan was drawn up for Bronte peninsula of Nelson, but fate determined that this would not be so. Instead, the Bronte area was planted in apple orchards and has remained this way for years. The land is well suited for vineyards as well, with the same clay gravel soils of the surrounding Moutere Hills coupled with the moderate climate due to the proximity to the sea. Patrick and Barbara Stowe recognised this potential, purchased the land in 1995 and began to remove the existing apple trees to plant the vineyard. The winery building was completed on the site in early 2000, just in time to accommodate the inaugural Rimu Grove vintage in March 2000. What a superb way to toast the new millennium. Read less

Tropical fruit, floral, spicy aromas with concentrated flavours of pears and spice. The wine was vinified to preserve the fresh, fruity aromas and provide an off-dry, fruity, full-bodied taste.
