Very endearing Central Otago Classic
Ata Mara Central Otago Pinot Gris 2021
Fragrant, pears, gingerloaf, creamy textured
The family-owned Ata Mara vineyard traverses the terraces between Mt Pisa and Lake Dunstan, north of Cromwell. From this vantage point, the hot days and cool nights provide all the factors necessary to create wines of superb quality and structure.
This single-vineyard wine, crafted from fruit hand-picked by its owners Janiene and David, showcases the region’s splendour with bright baked apple and gingerloaf aromas. The palate is creamy and richly fruited with excellent intensity. Crafted in a dryer style it has superb weight and length.
" It's splendidly fruited and elegantly fragrant on the nose showing rockmelon, poached pear, subtle spice and white floral aromas, leading to a flavoursome palate that's finely textured and persistent. Well poised and comfortingly appealing" - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
