2023 The Landing Pinot Gris


Tasting Notes

Yellow apple, orange rind, floral notes on the nose. Soft entry, pip-fruit flavours, dry, delicate, and finishes clean. Fresh, dry, mid-weight Pinot Gris, with texture and complexity from indigenous barrel ferment.

  • Vineyard & Winemaking

    Hand-picked, hand-sorted and whole bunch pressed. Free-run and pressings combined to add depth of flavour, the juice is racked to old barriques for fermentation by indigenous and cultured yeasts. Some indigenous malolactic occurs concurrently. The wine is blended to age a couple of months on fine lees to harmonise the components before bottling.

  • Vintage Notes

    A challenging season, strong La Niňa conditions continued right through 2022 and the first half of 2023 bringing above average rainfall and humidity to the north and east of the North Island. November, January, and early February were especially wet cumulating with Cyclone Gabrielle impacting Northland on the 12th and 13th of February. After Gabrielle the second half of February and all of March were relatively dry resulting in some good fruit but significantly reduced yields.

Warmed by Northland’s long summers, dried by the sea breeze and nurtured in ancient clay and sandstone soils, The Landing produces beautifully crafted wines.
