Giovanni Tait mastered the family tradition of coopering wine barrels before migrating to Australia in 1957. He took up work in the Barossa and ultimately settled in for a lengthy engagement at B Seppelts and Sons, where he played a significant role in the vinification and maturation of some of the most memorable vintages in Australian viticulture. Tait's boys grew up to be winemakers, their attention to detail and close relationship with the Barossa's finest growers have earned the highest accolades from the international wine industry press. Generously proportioned yet exquisitely balanced, famously praised, perennially by savant Robert Parker as the most consistently outstanding quality, exceptional value wines from Barossa Valley...

Drift Marlborough Pinot Gris CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Gris Grigio Marlborough Awatere New Zealand
The greater Marlborough region has two distinct mesoclimes which grow unique styles of Pinot Gris. Vines planted to good sites in Awatere Valley are stimulated by low rainfall and strong coastal winds, intense sunshine yet cool nights. Wairau Valley offers an abundance of sunshine, long autumns and crisp cool winters. Both yield harvests of world class white wine grapes. Drift take their pick of each, to create a wine with wonderful roundness of palate, a vibrant yet elegant expression of Marlborough, replete with the essential elements of Wairau and Awatere Pinot Gris.

Parcels of Pinot Gris are separately harvested from fine vineyards in the Awatere and Wairau valleys. Fruit is crushed, chilled and lightly pressed, batches are cold settled and racked into fermenters, inoculated to choice yeasts and vinified at cool temperatures to retain optimal fruit character. Batches remain on lees for two weeks to add complexity and textural richness, before assembling into the finished wine, followed by stabilising and early to bottling to retain Marlborough vivaciousness.
Light peach yellow hue. Subtle aromas of tropical fruit, dried pears and sweet spice, complimented by hints of cinnamon and red apple. A lusciously full flavoured palate, brimming with apple and pear juice flavours over subtle lychee notes, almonds and and light spice, lingering at the finish with crisp flavours and refreshing acidity.
