2020 Honi Late Harvest Pinot Gris (375mL)


A dessert wine for those who don't think they like dessert wines. Definitely not cloying or syrupy sweet, our late harvest Pinot Gris dances delicately on your palate. The name "Honi" is the Maori word for honey, which is appropriate given how this wine leads with beautiful notes of honey and pear, intermingled with vanilla, apricot, and orange blossom. In 2020 we did not see much botrytis (aka "noble rot") in these late harvest grapes, so this sweet wine shows restraint on the honey notes and emphasizes the fruit and floral flavours. Rich yet still showing delicacy and precision, this is a great pairing with almost any cheese (we'd like to know if you can find a cheese it won't complement!), and with lighter dessert fare. We expect this wine to age well for at least ten years. 100g/L residual sugar, 10.3% alcohol
