2019 Monowai Pinot Gris, Hawke’s Bay
This wine has elegant pear and floral aromas with hints of spice. On the palate it is rich and smooth, full of juicy fruit flavours of ripe stone fruit, poached pear and lychee. The up-front fruit flavours linger due to a delicately balanced acidity.
Cool climate styles are the focus of the Monowai vineyard and winery. Top quality Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay & Merlot are grown on the unique and distinctive free draining stony river terraces of their vineyard in Crownthorpe, a cool, high altitude district of the Hawke’s Bay.
Owners Emma Lowe and Marcelo Nunez developed their winemaking skills on both sides of the Pacific Ocean – in New Zealand and Chile. The Monowai name refers to the single expanse of ocean that separates their homelands.
