Helpful tip

Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio are different styles of wine made from the same grape. Pinot Gris tends to be more full-bodied and pairs with a different range of foods than the leaner, lighter style of Pinot Grigio.


Dry Riesling Food Match

Helpful tip

Riesling is one of the most versatile grapes and therefore a favourite for winemakers. However, the different styles can make it a little tricky to know what to expect. Our Riesling is not sweet and syrupy, it is dry – which on our case means crisp, citrusy and refreshing. We encourage you to give it a try and if you are not already, you might just become a Riesling fan!


Pinot Noir Food Match

Helpful tip

Marlborough Pinot Noir tends to be a little lighter and fruitier than the wines of Central Otago or Burgundy. Always let the wine sit in a glass or decanter a little while before drinking to bring out the flavours.
