There are but two winemakers who can lay claim to a staggering four Jimmy Watson Trophy victories. Wolf Blass was the man behind the label. John Glaetzer was the man behind Wolf Blass. While working for Wolf, Glaetzer was moonlighting on his own brand, applying the same extravagance of technique to the pick of Langhorne Creek fruit. Perfection in the form of black bramble fruit, muscular yet affable tannins, all framed by the luxury of ebony oak. Aspirants of the great Black Blass Label fables of 1974, 1975 and 1976, are privately advised to avail themselves of John's Blend, Cabernet or Shiraz. Crafted from the same parcels, in the same way, by the same hands, that collaborated to create, the most celebrated triumphs in the history of our nation's highest..

Kumeu River Pinot Gris CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Gris Grigio Auckland New Zealand
Kumeu River was a pioneer of the New Zealand winemaking industry, established in 1944 when the Brajkovich family settled at Kumeu just outside of Auckland. The estate makes some of New Zealand's finest Chardonnay and is equally adept at some of the more esoteric varietals. All their offerings have shown well at competitions and they excel at Pinot Gris. The estate's Auckland vineyards enjoy beautiful ripening conditions, encouraging the fruit to achieve a level of rich concentration and luscious textures, a very layered and complex Pinot Gris wine.

Kumeu River endeavours to grow grapes of the highest standard and then treat them with respect, painstakingly turning the finest fruit into outstanding wine. The quality is maximised to the fullest extent, delivering wines that are truly representative of the land. Faulty berries are removed in the field, and the best grapes arrive at the winery in pristine condition. Hand picked, bunch pressed Pinot Gris is treated to a wild indigenous yeast vinification over an extended period, followed by partial malolactic. Ferments are arrested before completely dry, several grams per litre of residual sugar are hardly noticeable due to the concentration of flavour and textural richness.
Light green yellow colour. Aromas of peach and stone fruit notes tinged with the floral perfume that we have come to expect from Pinot Gris. On the palate the wine is rich and complex with an oily texture that coats the tongue and lingers on the palate, with a lovely length of flavour. Pinot Gris is a variety that goes particularly well with food, including quite intensely flavoured dishes.
