Torea Pinot Gris 2011, Marlborough, New Zealand
Selected for Waddesdon’s guest wine selection due to its quality and artisanal approach to wine making. This Pinot Gris has a genetic connection to the mass produced Pinot Grigio that floods our supermarket shelves. However, that is firmly where the the comparisons end. This wonderful wine is exclusive to Waddesdon in the UK.

The nose opens after a few minute in the glass to reveal a wonderful array of stone and citrus fruit with a streak of wet stone and yoghurt. This vintage possesses 14% abv, and 7g/l of residual sugar – so although dry, there’s a richness and expansive feel to the palate. Torea Pinot Gris is certainly a little different, yet it displays wonderful wine making with bags of character. This wine is produced using fruit collected from the Brancott Valley region of Marlborough. This vintage is rested on its lees for almost a year and possesses the quality to warrant further cellaring, although it is drinking wonderfully at present.
