Falconhead Hawke’s Bay Pinot Gris 2021

$15.00$85.50

The New Zealand falcon has been a revered guardian of our vineyards for decades. At our Riverview Vineyard on the banks of the Ngaruroro River in Hawke’s Bay, we housed and trained a male and female falcon whose seemingly effortless grace held us rapt for many years.

The only remaining bird of prey endemic to New Zealand helps us with our natural sustainability program by managing pest control operations. To this day we still have a resident falcon who often visits the feeding station we’ve set up as a token of appreciation to this flying celebrity who also graces our country’s $20 bill. It’s worth noting that just one of these bills will get you a nice bottle of Falconhead to take home…

Clear

Lifted aromas of white flowers, ginger spice, and juicy ripe pear. The palate is generously textured and beautifully balanced with a long silky, seamless finish.

Wine Review

"Ripe, fruity core and varietal with aromas of green pear and apple, some quince, white blossoms and honeysuckle. Lush, juicy, salivating and just dry on the palate with a whisper of residual sweetness. Flavours of white fleshed fruits and some citrus coat the palate with contrasting acidity and a touch of spice. Balanced and well made. Ready to drink from 2021 through 2024+."

Vineyards and Winemaking

The fruit for this wine was sourced from four of our Hawke’s Bay vineyards - Riverview, Colefield, Tantallon, Kinross. The grapes were transported to our Riverview winery where they were pressed to stainless steel tanks and fermented using predominantly 58W3 yeast. The resulting wines were transported by road tanker to our Katikati winery for blending, finishing and bottling.
