Cracroft Chase Woods Edge Pinot Gris

Cracroft Chase Woods Edge Pinot Gris

"Alsace like" Pinot Gris from Canterbury

Cracroft Chase, named after the Cracroft-Wilson family who once owned all of the land in the Cashmere region of Christchurch, is a boutique winery nestled at the foot of the Port Hills. Very much a boutique operation, Alessandro and Wilma Laryn come originally from Italy, but make a more French style of Pinot Gris rather than the leaner style of Pinot Grigio.

Five hectares planted exclusively in Pinot Gris were planted on the hand-tended vineyard between 1998 and 1999. The site is protected on three sides by hills, but exposed to the warm Nor-Wester winds that create a unique microclimate. Grapes are processed on site and receive a combination of lees stirring and malolactic fermentation along with oak aging to enhance complexity.

Aromas of quince, pear, and manuka honey. Light touch of fruit sweetness up but dry in style, textured on the palate with with a savoury chalky finish
