Constantly seeking new ways to work, he combines his love of the land with wines as bold as his ambition. These very approachable wines prove that sustainability always rewards with lasting quality.

VINTAGE SUMMARY: The growing season in Marlborough started out warm and dry, resulting in very even flowering and ultimately balanced vines with the right amount of crop to get them through to harvest. The warm weather continued through Spring and Summer, with periodic rains which kept the vines hydrated through the warm growing season. The warmer conditions meant that harvest started around two weeks earlier than the previous year.

WINEMAKING
Winemaker: Natalie Christensen
Harvest Date: 21st March- 1st April 2018
Winemaking Analysis: Alc 13.0% pH 3.48 TA 6.15 RS 4.0g/l

Parcels of Pinot Gris were harvested individually over a ten-day period. The fruit was de-stemmed and pressed gently, separating the free run juice from the pressings. The juice was cold settled for 48 hours then racked prior to a long cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks to capture and enhance the fruit flavours of pear, honey and stone fruit. Each parcel was fermented separately using a range of selected yeasts. Following fermentation the wine was blended, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.

Product Reviews

John Saker 1 March 2012
CUISINE

"“This is so juicy and moreish – the balance is right on,” Simon Nunns enthused. Rich and ripe stonefruit flavours and great length, this tapas friendly wine is from the vast Yealands Estate in the Awatere Valley. 4 Stars, Best Buy.”

Dan Murphy's on-line reviewers 2014
"Peter Yealands Pinot Gris is brimming with pear drop and nutty characters, leading to subtle flavours of stone fruit and honey. The palate is full and shows wonderful balance between fruit sweetness and acidity, with a refreshing, crisp finish. Enjoy with Asian food, chicken dishes and many light southern Italian pasta dishes."

The Wine Advocate, eRobertParker.com
The Independent Consumer's guide to fine wines.

"The 2014 Pinot Gris opens to freash apples and peaches on the nose with a waft of honeysuckle. Medium-bodied, dry and showing a good texture, it offers just enough freahness to hold on the long finish."
