Ant Moore Pinot Gris
This wine is pale straw with bright rose hues. On the nose it has floral aromas of pear and stone fruit, nectarine and peach. On the palete it is layered with fruit, this wine is a great combination of creamy Pinot Gris characters and fresh clean dry ,
Try with creamy chicken or salmon dishes.
Fruit is supplied from two Estate Vineyards, first crop and 5 year old vines. Vineyards are located in the Waihopai Valley, and the grapes are batch fermented and blended just before bottling.
With vineyards situated in the Waihopai, Awatere and Upper Wairau areas of Marlborough, New Zealand, Ant Moore wines are generally more restrained with minerality, complexity and great balance. Control and hands-on management of the vineyards and the winemaking process, creates rich wines, with ripe flavours and texture and fresh lifted aromas, signatures of Ant Moore Wines.

Matthew Nugent, Irish Mail on Sunday, January 2012: "A real find, this is a wine with balance and complexity. Enticing aromas of pear, peach and nectarine lead into a palate that is fresh with racy acidity, hints of lime and crisp minerality. Long, clean finish."
