Black Cottage Marlborough Pinot Gris 2020
This dry Pinot Gris with a crunchy, crisp texture has aromas of Asian pear, quince and ginger spice. These are reflected in mouth-quenching flavours on the palate, where you’ll also find touches of vanilla bean come through with a crack of rock salt on the finish. Pair with Asian fare and spicy dishes to best compliment.
As a family run winery, sustainability is at the core of the Black Cottage ethos – they focus on sustainable, small-batch winemaking and are part of the Sustainable Winegrowers New Zealand programme. David Clouston – founder of the Black Cottage Winery – worked for a number of years at wineries in the USA, France, Spain and Chile before returning to his native Marlborough. He now lives in a wooden cottage in the Wairau Valley that is painted black, after which the winery is named. At the end of 2019 Black Cottage implemented light weight bottles, designed to reduce the carbon footprint of transportation.
