WINEMAKERS COMMENTS

Advanced technical vineyard management practice beyond the usual, and a handson wine making approach is the signature for this range. This wine was fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures to help with the aromatics and the fullness of the palate. The Waihopai label has produced a very drinkable and lovely Pinot Grigio.

FOOD MATCH

To be enjoyed over a lingering lunch or sunset evening, Waihopai Pinot Grigio and a delicious antipasto platter with smoked fish and chicken, feta stuffed pepperdews, soft runny bries and bruschetta.
