Kim Crawford Marlborough Pinot Gris

Kim Crawford Marlborough Pinot Gris

Wine: Kim Crawford Pinot Gris

Producer: Kim Crawford

Country: New Zealand

Region: Marlborough

Vintage: 2020

Style: White

Blend: Pinot Gris 100%

ABV: 13%

Size: 75cl

 

Notes: Fresh, crisp pears on the palate with a generous mouthfeel. Elegant & supple, delivering flavours of warm, spicy fruit. Five different yeasts were used to bring out the fruit character while retaining fresh acidity.

The grapes were gently pressed with minimal skin contact. The clarified juice was then cool fermented, optimising varietal expression, flavour & intensity & there was no oak contact throughout the process.

 

Producer Info: Kim Crawford Wines was established in late 1996, when Kim & Erica Crawford launched two wines made from fruit grown in Marlborough. The Crawfords sold the company to Constellation in 2005 & subsequently handed the reins over to the Constellation winemaking team, led by chief winemaker Anthony Walkenhorst, who had actually trained under Kim.

Despite Kim Crawford no longer being involved with these wines, the current winemakers & viticulturalists continue the classic Crawford philosophy & style. Control over grape supply has always been essential & Constellation continues to maintain good contracts with growers in the region, ensuring consistency of quality & style. For that consistency, & success over the past 20 years, Wine Enthusiast magazine USA recognised Kim Crawford as their “New World Winery of the Year 2016”.
