The name Ara (pronounced ‘are-ah’) is both the indigenous Maori word for “pathway” and Latin for “altar”. Both definitions are compatible with their philosophy. Ara's wines are produced from their sustainably managed vineyard in the most south-western corner of Marlborough and deliver an intense and unmistakable purity.
This beautiful Pinot Gris delivers delicate aromas of pear and nectarine which flow through to honeyed floral and citrus notes on the palate. A textural and elegant structure provide length to the finish.
Wonderfully ripe and fragrant, the wine shows Nashi pear, apricot and floral aromas on the nose with a hint of spicy overtone. It’s pristine and concentrated on the palate, offering terrific fruit intensity backed by rounded mouthfeel and juicy acidity, finishing long and delicious.
