Tantalus Regional Pinot Gris 2019

Expressing sumptuous aromatics of ripe nashi pear, white nectarine and guava interlaced with crushed ginger and a hint of honey suckle. Rich and unctuous in the mouth, it is balanced by a mineral backbone and fresh lively acidity. Extended lees stirring and hint of French oak provide another layer of complexity culminating in a wine of great length and depth.

Tantalus Estate is a boutique brewery, winery, restaurant and 200-person venue in one, perfect for weddings, private events or simply to enjoy during a visit to beautiful Waiheke Island.

Nobody thought that the Tantalus Estate on Waiheke Island could be restored to its former glory, but when you’re the kind of people where determination replaces sleep like Campbell and Carrie Aitken, anything is possible! After tirelessly pruning, clipping, and ripping out the original vines, a bit of experience in tourism (and a lot of determined Kiwi ingenuity), Campbell and Carrie bought and transformed the old brewery into the estate that it is today: Proud, elegant and premium.

The Aitken’s love and understanding of people and cultures is the foundation of everything that they do at Tantalus Estate, and it shows in their winery as well as their hospitality. Their winemaking process is characterised by elegance and subtlety, constantly pursuing excellence and carefully choreographing every step of production so that each vintage is better than the last, every drop leaving an indelible impression.
