Aromatic & Flavourful

Proudly family owned, the Borthwick vineyard is an established vineyard situated in Gladstone, the heart of the Wairarapa. Producing quality wine for over a decade, Paddy, an experienced wine maker, has gained a reputation for producing consistently great wines. The twenty seven hectares of vines bordering the Ruamahunga River are growing on stony, free draining, alluvial soils, with a micro climate giving warm daily temperatures, cool nights and low rainfall; perfect conditions for producing distinctive, quality wines.

Perfumed aromas of apricots, nectarines and green pears. A rich mid-palate displaying mild oak influence. The wine finishes dry and crisp with lingering hints of warming spice.

The gentle acidity and marked fruitiness of a well balanced Pinot Gris perfectly complements roast pork with a stewed pear sauce, or match with creamy pastas, poultry and seafood.

This product is part of the LCBO Vintages program. It may take approximately 3-4 weeks to be delivered.

Press Reviews

93 Points

Delightfully fruited and immediately appealing, the wine shows ripe peach, fresh pear, floral and subtle spice aromas on the nose, leading to a succulent palate that's supple and fleshy. It's fruit forward and vibrant with a lengthy silky finish. At its best: now to 2022.
