Gunn Estate Hawkes Bay Pinot Gris 2008
Hawkes Bay
When George Poppa Gunn first settled in 1920, Hawkes Bay was a farming region where great skill and experience were required to compensate for the poor soils and rather dry conditions. After sixty years of struggling to eke out an existence, providence spoke to the Gunn family with the epiphany that their farm on the banks of Ngaruroro River at Hawke's Bay was Sol superbe for the production of the most splendid, award winning wines. A traditional style of Pinot Gris offering warmth and creamyness, flavoursome and long.

Time has ways of turning adversity into an endowment. Today you'd think the Ohiti Valley was purpose built for wine making. Dry soils and poor farming conditions don't daunt winemaker Denis Gunn. The benig, warm microclimes around the leeward aspects of the Gunn Estate, coupled with a unique combination of soil, climate and geography consecrate the grapes before they've even been introduced to the winemaker. Cool fermented in temperature controlled tanks to retain freshness and vibrancy.
 
Pale straw colour. Lifted aromas of gooseberry, citrus and floral notes, hints of passionfruit. Fragrances of sweet orchard stonefruit, fleshy white peaches and nashi pear, subtle spicyness with floral notes. A rich and softly textured palate with great depth of flavour reflecting the intense aromatics. Pinot Gris of persistence, exquisite balance and long clean flavours.

The site of Gunn Estate's Hawkes Bay vineyards is protected from the prevailing northwest winds by the surrounding limestone hills, creating an unusually warm microclimate which stimulates the local ripening conditions. The soils are also wine friendly, retaining the warmth and draining freely to inhibit vigour of the vines, which serves to concentrate flavours in the grapes. Hawke's Bay indian summers lead to stunningly flavoured grapes. Overall, physiological maturity is achieved across all varieties, and flavours are intense. Grapes are gently pressed and coolly vinified to retain the vivacious fruit characters, racked off lees and assembled into the finished wine. Alcohol 12.0%
 
Pale straw with green hues. A bouquet of dry and lifted aromas of green vegetable, citrus and floral characters over scents of ripe passionfruit, mango and lychee along with hints of lemon and grapefruit. The entire length of the wine is fresh and lively, citrus flavours are balanced by lively tropical notes. Texture, richness and universally appealing expressions throughout the nose and palate, crunchy apple acidity accompanies the wine to a tantalizing finish followed by a splendid, lingering aftertaste.

Winemaker Denis Gunn is adept at crafting champion, trophy winning chardonnays. A unique combination of soil, climate and geography gives Gunn Estate grapes a natural advantage before they've even been introduced to the winemaker. Denis has pulled the reins around some superlative batches of fine Hawkes Bay fruit and crafted a punch bowl of a Chardonnay without any oak treatment whatsoever. A long warm and dry summer has given us wonderfully ripe fruit with great intensity and balance. Carefully harvested grapes were gently pressed and cool fermented in steel tank. Blending of various vineyard components has resulted in a well balanced varietal wine. Alcohol 13.0%
 
Pale straw with light green hues. Bouquet is exquisite fruit driven chardonnay, fresh white flesh peach and citrus blossom with hints of dried pineapple and spicey grapefruit. Fruit galore, peppery and limey at once, full bodied with ripe pineapple, gooseberry and lychee flavours. Flavours that are wonderfully fresh, rich yet not big or heavy, delightful acid balance, lingering tropical flavours, crunchy stonefruit, total harmony. The palate here is clean and the complexity of flavours mates beautifully, peach and rockmelon, well balanced, a clean lingering citrus aftertaste.
Gunn Estate Winery is a family affair that started in 1983 when the first estate vineyards where planted on the banks of the Ngaruroro River at Hawke’s Bay

Since these first plantings Gunn Estate has grown into a highly regarded producer of quality New Zealand wines including Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling and Bordeaux varietals including Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. The textured symbol on the Gunn Estate logo represents the Greywacke river gravel and waters of the Ngaruroro river that follow near the estate vineyards, it also symbolises the ‘O’ of Ohiti Valley - home of the Gunn Estate family. ‘From the Heart, from the Home’, captures the essence and philosophy of the Gunn family who have tilled and nurtured the estate vineyards since the mid 1980’s.

Gunn Estate

Gunn Estate spreads along the northern banks of the Ngaruroro River at the foot of the Ohiti Valley. Just across the river is the Gimblett Gravels sub region, and Gunn Estate shares many of the terroir characteristics that have built a huge international reputation for this small slice of Hawkes Bay. In 1920, when George (Poppa) Gunn arrived here from Roxburgh in Central Otago, this was a farming region where great skill and experience were required to compensate for the poor soils and rather dry conditions. For more than 60 years, the Gunn family poured hard work and determination into the mostly unreceptive ground.

During the early 1980s, Alan Gunn - George Gunn's eldest grandson - suggested that the familys land had the potential to become one of the countrys finest vineyards. Forward thinkers had just begun to grow classic varietal grapes in the Hawkes Bay, so his hunch was not without foundation.

In 1983 the Gunn family planted their first vineyard and soon became suppliers to many high profile winemakers in the Hawkes Bay region. Gunn Estate grapes were consistently utilised for top flight wine ranges

With their wine growing reputation improving with every year, Alan and younger brother Denis turned their attention to the development of their own wine label - a brand that would express the essence of the Ohiti Valley area. Their dream became a reality in 1994, when the first wine was released under the Gunn Estate name - an unoaked chardonnay.

Today, Gunn Estate produces a range of wines - some from carefully selected vineyards around New Zealand, others from the winery's spiritual home, the Ohiti Valley. All Gunn Estate wines reflect the passion and determination of the three generations of Gunns who have lived, loved and worked their estate since 1920.

You’d think the Ohiti Valley was purpose built for wine making. The valley’s sedimentary soils are the result of thousands of years of river flooding, which allowed greywacke river gravels to be deposited on the plains.

It is this unique combination of soil, climate and geography that gives Gunn Estate grapes a natural advantage before they’ve even been introduced to the winemaker

These soils are wine-friendly because they hold heat, drain freely and inhibit the vigour of the vines, which helps to concentrate flavours in the grapes. What’s more, the site of Gunn Estate’s Ohiti Valley vineyards is protected from the prevailing north west winds by the surrounding limestone hills, creating an unusually warm microclimate that provides optimum ripening conditions.
