Bringing you the fruit of old Barossa vineyards, which have been handed down from generation to generation, crafted in the traditional old world way, by a commune of family growers who have delivered the most memorable vintages since early settlement. The label says Soul Growers but the harvests were historically bottled by the nation's most illustrious brands. Today, these veteran families of Australian viticulture can bring their princely harvests to market under a moniker that defines a tradition of village winemaking and a culture of reverence for the land. Ancient rootstock Grenache and Mourvedre, bespoke clones of Cabernet and Shiraz, prodigal plots of Pinot Noir. This magnificent range of varietals are all remarkable for their seamlessness, succulence of fruit and velvet tannins. Only the finest old vineyards are considered for admission into the Soul Growers club. Nothing but the top cut of barrel aged wines are worthy of the Soul Growers stamp...

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.
