Aromatic & Flavourful

For winemaker and co-founder Rob Cameron, the Invivo range is all about taking some of the elegance from the old world and putting that style into our amazing grapes, all the while offering wines that are fun and a bit unique.

The nose is sweet and savoury like good white Bordeaux but instead of pineapples it’s grapefruit and crystalline ginger. The palate is concentrated and broad with a strong citrus grapefruit theme, but also spicy and with balanced acidity to the off-dry finish.

This product is part of the LCBO Vintages program. It may take approximately 7-10 business days to be delivered.

Press Reviews

This is opulent, complex and engaging on the nose displaying grilled apricot, poached pear and fragrant spice characters with a hint of beeswax complexity. It is powerful and fleshy on the palate, displaying excellent fruit concentration and rich texture, wonderfully complemented by elegant sweetness and perfectly pitched acidity. Mouthfilling and stylish.

The 2017 is number one, inaugural vintage for pinot gris in the Michelle line of Invivo wines. Central Otago is pinot country and not just for noir but also gris, well-suited to rugged landscapes that want to partner with vines working dutifully for their grape reward. This full on, oily and fleshy succulent pinot gris is almost old-school, off-dry Alsatian in style. It’s a wine of true glück in temperament and texture, at times sharp and full of vim. Yet it’s not vivid, is grounded in reality and of a smoky smoulder that gives it a bit of movie star status. Buy your sushi from a higher end bar, one that takes the extra step to exult fish through time-honoured preparations. Pair up, test, experiment and investigate within the living. Drink 2021-2025. Tasted May 2021.
