Cape Bernier 2017 ‘Haphazard’ Pinot Gris

 

Our Pinot Gris, is pale straw in colour with a floral bouquet. The extended hours of sunshine provided by our easterly aspect combined with the extended growing season allowed the fruit to develop balance and complexity. The palate is characterised by refreshing pear and mandarin with a hint of honeysuckle and green apple from a small amount of field blended Chardonnay. The delicate fruit flavours balanced by a crisp acid finish pair perfectly with succulent meats and seafood. Drink now or cellar for 3-5 years.

 

Cape Bernier Pinot Rose

 

A crisp, summer wine with a refreshing dry palate made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes. A fruit forward bouquet of strawberry shortcake and raspberry is complemented by texture, balance and length. A perfect match to enjoy with light and delicate salads, spicy foods, as well as fresh seafood or soft white cheeses.
