Shaky Bridge Pinot Gris 2011
You can now buy New Zealand's Shaky Bridge Pinot Gris wine in Singapore! It provides a slightly more refined flavour proposition compared to the lower range Pioneer series and will be a very rewarding drink. At the same time, the finish is slightly unusual - either almonds or marzipan, so if you don't like that in your wine, going for the Pioneer version would be a better choice. Otherwise, just chill and enjoy!

Tasting notes and food pairing ideas:
Filled with intense peach, apricot and floral aromas, this Pinot Gris delivers a luscious, weighty mouthful of wine providing a crisp clean finish with a hint of spice. Unlike many of its global cousins, the style of Shakybridge's Pinot Gris encapsulates the essence of Central Otago by providing a full and uniquely flavoured taste profile for this variety. Match this wine with summer salads, lightly spiced dishes or sushi.
Enjoy now or cellar 3 – 4 years to enhance complexity. Perfectly ripe, flavourful berries were hand picked, lightly crushed, destemmed and transferred to stainless tanks for a 24 hour cold soak period prior to fermentation. The wine makers believe the cold soak greatly aids the development of a layered texture in the wine, providing the depth and intensity we achieve. The juice was cool fermented in stainless steel and briefly aged on light lees prior to bottling.
